Godhead Christianity

Godhead (or godhood) refers to the divinity or substance (ousia) of the Christian God, especially as existing in three persons -- the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Appearance in English Bibles

John Wycliffe introduced the term godhede into English Bible versions in two places, and, though somewhat archaic, the term survives in modern English because of its use in three places of the Tyndale New Testament (1525), the Geneva Bible (1560/1599), and King James Version (1611). In that translation, the word was used to translate three different Koine Greek words:

Verse Greek Romanization Type Translation Vulgate 405 Wycliffe 1395 Tyndale 1525 ESV 2001
Acts 17:29 theion[1] adjective "divine, godly" divinum that godli thing godhed the divine being
Romans 1:20 ? theiot?s[2] noun "divinity, divine nature" divinitas godhed godhed divine nature
Colossians 2:9 theot?s[3] noun "deity" divinitas the Godhed the godheed deity
