I think the usual answer to this is to acknowledge that no, the bible doesn't use that terminology per se. It is rather a philosophical or
theological construct to make sense out of the power and knowledge of God that is portrayed in the bible.
It is similar to the concept of the trinity in Christian theology I think. Although all three "persons" of the trinity seem to be mentioned, it
took hundreds of years of later theological speculation to come up with a doctrine to make sense of that. (Not that the doctrine truly makes sense,
just in an official sort of way).
