From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicene_Creed#Niceno-Constantinopolitan_Creed:

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spake by the prophets.

What is the biblical basis for these particular claims in the creed?

  • All of the elements, except for Lord, and who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, are explicitly found in scripture; the other two are argued from various biblical passages, instead of representing simple quotes; also, the latter was simply a descriptive statement of de facto Christian worship, both before and during Arianism, since some Arians argued that glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit is incorrect, and only the formula glory to the Father through the Son in the Holy Spirit should be used; both expressions were historically employed.

  • I would have thought you would want to refer specifically to the Athanasian Creed in a question which deals with relationships within Deity.

  • @NigelJ - I wanted to ask a question about a creed that was closer to the apostolic age. But regarding the Athanasian Creed, somebody already asked this question: What is the biblical basis for the Athanasian Creed's statement that believing in the Trinity is necessary for salvation?

  • Note: the creed isn't actually saying that the HG/HS is to be worshiped. It is saying that the HG/HS is worshiped through worship of the Father and/or Son. (Similarly, worshiping the Son is worshiping the Father.)
