The Triune God
There are many references in scripture relating to the triune God, the great three in one. In the Christian religion it teaches that there is one God in three persons.
These three separate Persons of the Trinity are illustrated here.
God, the Father.
God, the Son, which is Jesus. The word is Jesus. It is written, his name (Jesus) is called the word of God-Revelation 19:13. Also it is written, in the beginning was the word (Jesus), and the word (Jesus) was with God, and the word (Jesus) was God. Jesus is the Word and He is God. and the word (Jesus) was made flesh, and dwelt among us-John 1:1, 14.
God, the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit.
