At the begining of the book of John we learn that the “Word” is someone, not something.
1 In the beginning was the Word: the Word was with God and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things came into being, not one thing came into being except through him.
4 What has come into being in **him **was life, life that was the light of men;
5 and light shines in darkness, and darkness could not overpower it.
And if you look at the begining of the book of Genesis you’ll notice God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
1 In the beginning God created heaven, and earth.
God the Father
2 And the earth was void and empty, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the **spirit of God **moved over the waters.
God the Holy Spirit
3 And God said: Be light made. And light was made.
The Word of God, before He came in the flesh, Jesus
26 God said, “Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.”
The Holy Trinity
The dogma of the Holy Trinity
The Trinity is One. We do not confess three Gods, but one God in three persons, the "consubstantial Trinity."83 The divine persons do not share **the one divinity among themselves but each of them is God whole and entire: "The Father is that which the Son is, the Son that which the Father is, the Father and the Son that which the Holy Spirit is, i.e., by nature one God."84 In the words of the Fourth Lateran Council (1215): "Each of the persons is that supreme reality, viz., the divine substance, essence or nature."85
The divine persons are really distinct from one another. "God is one but not solitary."86 “Father,” “Son,” “Holy Spirit” are not simply names designating modalities of the divine being, for they are really distinct from one another: "He is not the Father who is the Son, nor is the Son he who is the Father, nor is the Holy Spirit he who is the Father or the Son."87 They are distinct from one another in their relations of origin: "It is the Father who generates, the Son who is begotten, and the Holy Spirit who proceeds."88 The divine Unity is Triune.
"I BELIEVE IN GOD THE FATHER ALMIGHTY, CREATOR
OF HEAVEN AND EARTH"
Back to the book of John
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15 John beareth witness of him, and crieth out, saying: This was he of whom I spoke: He that shall come after me, is preferred before me: because he was before me.
16 And of his fullness we all have received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses; grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
18 No man hath seen God at any time: the only **begotten Son **who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
**Begotten =1. spawn, sire, breed, father, (esp. of a male parent) to procreate or generate (offspring). **
Don’t think this way
think of it this way…
Thats as close as I can get to understanding it.
