Understanding the Holy Trinity


I understand that there is one God, who consists of three Divine Persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Nonetheless, I don’t fully understand words like ‘consubstantial’, ‘hypostases’, ‘nature’, ‘essence’, ‘substance’, or ‘homoousion’ in relation to the Trinity.

My understanding of the Trinity is basic for someone who understands relatively deep theological Truths so I hope that somebody will be able to explain in easy terms what each of those words mean in relation to understanding the Holy Trinity.

God Bless.
