Imagine, if you will, discussing the bible with someone who has never heard of it. How would you begin? There are some difficulties that would arise if you simply jumped in and started with the bible proper, so I feel it best to begin at the beginning.
God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are 3 separate entities. The bible makes that perfectly clear multiple times in the bible. [Matthew 28: 19, Romans 8: 11, Matthew 3: 16-18 just to name a few] however the confusion lies in God and Jesus being called “one.”I and my father are one” John 10: 30 also “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father” John 14: 9.
