God the Son: "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us" (John 1:14).
"Jesus answered, 'Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father'" (John 14:9).
God the Spirit: "And I (Jesus) will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever-- the Spirit of truth... But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all
truth" (John 14:16-17, 16:13).
