Well, you do not seem to agree with the majority of scholars on that..I studied the New Testament and found it to be true and honest written by witnesses that knew Jesus Christ..
Paul(Saul) of Tarsus, for example, was not one of Jesus' disciples .. he only "knew him" from an
experience he had while on a journey. A vision of some kind.
I do not say that Paul did not have this vision, but he can't have possibly known him, in the way that you imply.
..and then we have the Gospels ..
Like the rest of the New Testament, the four gospels were written in Greek. The Gospel of Mark probably dates from c. AD 66–70, Matthew and Luke around AD 85–90, and John AD 90–110. Despite the traditional ascriptions, all four are anonymous and most scholars agree that none were written by eyewitnesses..

..written in Greek?
There exists a consensus among scholars that the language of Jesus and his disciples was Aramaic. This is generally agreed upon by historians. Aramaic was the common language of Judea in the first century AD.
I share your enthusiasm in gaining Knowledge about God / religion, but I think you need to look into
these things more closely.
..and what is it about "the trinity" that makes it so important to you?
Are you not satisfied with loving God through Jesus Christ, reciting the Lord's prayer as He taught us to do?
Why do we need to know the precise nature of Jesus, in order to worship God?
Why are others who worship God through Jesus not acceptable in the eyes of God?
In my opinion, those who war against others, on the basis that they do not believe Jesus is God,
are being misled by the devil .. God is far above mankind's sectarian dogma.
