Is Jesus the same Person as the Father? [Spirituality & Religion]

No, Jesus is not the same person as the Father. In the doctrine of the Trinity, there are three persons in the Godhead: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We use the term "person" to describe each of the three because each displays attributes of personhood. Each has a will, speaks, loves, is self-aware, and is aware of others. Yet, the Bible teaches that there is only one God (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6, 8; 45:5, 18, 21, 22). Therefore, the person of the Son is not the same person as the Father. They speak to each other and have their own wills.

The Father spoke to His Son. Matt. 3:17, "And behold, a voice out of the heavens, saying, 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.'"

Luke 22:42, "Father, if Thou art willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Thine be done."

There are, however, Oneness groups who claim that there is only one person in the Godhead: Jesus. They erringly state that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all the same person, only different in manifestation. This is an error.

We have the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each is not the same person as the other. Yet, there are not three gods, only one.

No. Jesus is the Son of God.

That is a particularly tortured way of maintaining monotheism given 3 beings. Can we say that the God has multiple avatars?
[@1007974,Aardvark97] Then you better take it up with God because he's the one that told us these things in His Word. It's not my theory. It is His Word and we can rely on his word. Being perfect Himself, He does not, and cannot err.
