Dr. Charles Ryrie says that Christ's deity is proved by His equality in the trinity and lists Matthew 28:19 as well as 2 Corinthians 13:14. Regarding the former passage, BB Warfield says, "The connection described is inherent and essential, and not that of presence or external fellowship" (Westcott). This prepares us for the great assertion: "I and the Father are one" (Jn 10:30), from which it is a mere corollary that "He that hath seen me hath seen the Father" (Jn 14:9; compare John 8:19; 12:45)." Going further, we could say that His name is assigned equal standing with God the Father in the church's baptismal formula and in the apostolic benediction/greeting (Matthew 28:19; cf. Acts 2:38; 2 Corinthians 13:14; cf. 1 Corinthians 1:3, Ephesians 1:2).
