Hello again..... But your thread title reads:- Christian answers to Muslim questions, and you've just presumed what the Muslim question might be.
But if you think that a Muslim has asked that question about the Trinity, your first mistake (imo) because Islam makes statement about it, then neither your film nor your writings could help much..... all you would need to do is to show the gospel verses where Jesus explains this, and Muslims could respond to that, maybe?
I'm a Deist so I will leave all this to any Muslims, I guess.
In the introduction video on our channel, we mention that the whole thing started from a list of five questions that were given to me by a Muslim imam. And in every video we present an email address where people can ask new questions. And in the last 48 hours, we have gotten two questions that we've combined into one question which will be addressed in the next video. So we aren't just guessing what Muslims ask, we are being asked. Now we supplement that with things we think are important to know about the Christian faith, but that too is mentioned in the opening video.
Also if you've spent much time talking with Muslims on this issue, simply quoting verses doesn't work, for two reasons...first, they think the text is corrupted...(which we've addressed in its own video) and second, because they think it's a unique concept to the New Testament and Christians which seems like innovation which is a concept they reject.
Our purpose is not to argue with their contentions or suppositions...it's to present what we believe and why. So we explain why we find credibility in the Bible and view it as uncorrupted. We explain why we believe in the Trinity and that it IS logically plausible AND can be found across the whole of the Bible both Old and New. But we do that in the affirmative. This is what we believe and why. We never mention Islam. We never criticize Mohammad. That's not our role. Our role is to lift up Jesus.
That's our take. Others approach apologetics differently, and we are FOR that...but this is what we believe we have been called to do and the spirit in which we have been called to do it.
