Many Christians do not have a clear understanding of the Godhead and are perplexed by it. They should not feel embarrassed about this dilemma because the relationship of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to one another is not easy to understand. Even the disciples of Jesus Christ did not understand it. Consider the conversation between the Lord Jesus and Philip. "Philip said to Him, 'Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.' Jesus said to him, 'Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?" (Jn.14:8-9). If the Lord's disciple could not fully understand the Godhead relationship, then is it any wonder that today's Christians can also be the same? Some ministers avoid discussing the Godhead relationship because they think that it is a mystery that cannot be explained.
"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." (1 Tim. 3:16)
Paul wrote about "the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints." (Col. 1:26). The Godhead relationship is no longer a mystery. The apostle John wrote: "And we know that the Son of God' has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God and eternal life." (1 Jn. 5:20) We can now have an understanding of the Son of God that we may know Him who is true.
In this study we use a simple language and avoid theological terms. Our objective is to have as many people as possible understand the Godhead and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as the One True God. Our Lord prayed to the Father, "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the Only True God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." (Jn. 17:3) We hope that this prayer will be fulfilled in your life as you go through this web site.
May God bless you
