Just to let you know... that just because the "word" Trinity (as well as other words such as the word "Rapture") isn't found in the Bible, doesn't mean that it isn't ...taught.
The word Trinity is defined in the dictionary as:
1. The Christian Godhead as one God in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
2. A group of three spiritual Persons
God is a Triune God: Three spiritual Persons in One.
The Trinity consists of: God, the Father (Jehovah). God the Son, Jesus (Lord and Savior). And God the Holy Spirit (all Power).
One of the best ways to describe the Trinity is the example of an egg. An egg has 3 parts. The shell, the yolk, and the white. All three can be used independently from one another and yet, still be called...an egg. The Trinity of God is One, yet can be separate and used independently as well.
"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father (Jehovah God), the Word (Jesus), and the Holy Ghost (Spirit/Ghost) all Power: and these three are one." 1 John 5:7 (Three in One = Trinity)
Jesus said, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" Matthew 28:19 (Three in One = Trinity)
2 Corinthians 13:14 "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen" (Three in One = Trinity)
All three Persons of the Godhead were involved in the work of creation.
"God ...created the heavens and the earth" Genesis 1:1.
"The Spirit of God (Holy Spirit/Ghost) was hovering over the face of the waters:" Genesis 1:2.
And "All things were created through Him (Jesus) and for Him (Jesus)." Colossians 1:16b.
"I have given them the glory You (Jehovah God) gave Me (Jesus), so they may be one as We are One." (John 17:22 NLT)
"Now, Father (Jehovah God), bring Me (Jesus) into the glory we shared before the world began." (John 17:5 NLT)
Man too, is a triune creature: The threefold nature of man is: Body, Soul and Spirit.
The ‘Body’ (physical) which consists of five senses of: Sight, Smell, Hearing, Taste, and Touch.
The ‘Soul’ consists of: Imagination, Conscience, Memory, Reason, and Affections.
The “Spirit” receives impressions of outward and material things through the soul. The spiritual faculties of the Spirit are: Faith, Hope, Reverence, Prayer and Worship.

The Trinity is one God existing in three Persons. Understand that this is not in any way suggesting three Gods. Keep in mind when studying this subject that the word “Trinity” is not found in Scripture. This is a term that is used to attempt to describe the triune God—three coexistent, co-eternal Persons who make up God. Of real importance is that the concept represented by the word “Trinity” does exist in Scripture. The following is what God’s Word says about the Trinity:
1) There is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5).
2) The Trinity consists of three Persons (Genesis 1:1, 26; 3:22; 11:7; Isaiah 6:8, 48:16, 61:1; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14). In Genesis 1:1, the Hebrew plural noun "Elohim" is used. In Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7 and Isaiah 6:8, the plural pronoun for “us” is used. The word "Elohim" and the pronoun “us” are plural forms, definitely referring in the Hebrew language to more than two.
In Isaiah 48:16 and 61:1, the Son is speaking while making reference to the Father and the Holy Spirit. Compare Isaiah 61:1 to Luke 4:14-19 to see that it is the Son speaking. Matthew 3:16-17 describes the event of Jesus' baptism. Seen in this passage is God the Holy Spirit descending on God the Son while God the Father proclaims His pleasure in the Son. Matthew 28:19 and 2 Corinthians 13:14 are examples of three distinct Persons in the Trinity.
3) The members of the Trinity are distinguished one from another in various passages. In the Old Testament, “LORD” is distinguished from “Lord” (Genesis 19:24; Hosea 1:4). The LORD has a Son (Psalm 2:7, 12; Proverbs 30:2-4). The Spirit is distinguished from the “LORD” (Numbers 27:18) and from “God” (Psalm 51:10-12). God the Son is distinguished from God the Father (Psalm 45:6-7; Hebrews 1:8-9). In the New Testament, Jesus speaks to the Father about sending a Helper, the Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17). This shows that Jesus did not consider Himself to be the Father or the Holy Spirit. Consider also all the other times in the Gospels where Jesus speaks to the Father. Was He speaking to Himself? No. He spoke to another Person in the Trinity—the Father.
4) Each member of the Trinity is God. The Father is God (John 6:27; Romans 1:7; 1 Peter 1:2). The Son is God (John 1:1, 14; Romans 9:5; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 1:8; 1 John 5:20). The Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 3:16).
5) There is subordination within the Trinity. Scripture shows that the Holy Spirit is subordinate to the Father and the Son, and the Son is subordinate to the Father. This is an internal relationship and does not deny the deity of any Person of the Trinity. This is simply an area which our finite minds cannot understand concerning the infinite God. Concerning the Son see Luke 22:42, John 5:36, John 20:21, and 1 John 4:14. Concerning the Holy Spirit see John 14:16, 14:26, 15:26, 16:7, and especially John 16:13-14.
6) The individual members of the Trinity have different tasks.
FATHER: is the ultimate source or cause of the universe (1 Corinthians 8:6; Revelation 4:11); divine revelation (Revelation 1:1); salvation (John 3:16-17); and Jesus' human works (John 5:17; 14:10). The Father initiates all of these things.
SON: is the agent through whom the Father does the following works: the creation and maintenance of the universe (1 Corinthians 8:6; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17); divine revelation (John 1:1, 16:12-15; Matthew 11:27; Revelation 1:1); and salvation (2 Corinthians 5:19; Matthew 1:21; John 4:42). The Father does all these things through the Son, who functions as His agent.
HOLY SPIRIT: is the means by whom the Father does the following works: creation and maintenance of the universe (Genesis 1:2; Job 26:13; Psalm 104:30); divine revelation (John 16:12-15; Ephesians 3:5; 2 Peter 1:21); salvation (John 3:6; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:2); and Jesus' works (Isaiah 61:1; Acts 10:38). Thus, the Father does all these things by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 7:55 KJV
But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
Hear is a verse as Stephen is being stoned all three represented here.

I certainly can.
Jesus speaking in John 14:26, "But the Comforter, which is the HOLY GHOST, whom the FATHER will send IN MY NAME, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."
Seems like it's pretty clearly demonatrated here.

1 John 5:7
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word (Jesus), and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
There are three divine characters in the Bible (four if you count Satan) but Jewish law requires its followers to have ONLY one god and no more. If you don't play with semantics a little, you can't make it work.
