    It seem s you are mixing up two different persons, 1. The only One Eternal God, a Spirit and 2. God His son, Jeshua (Jesus Christ).

      Marcus,

      Thanks for your comment. As I mentioned in the post, I was not the author of the chart, but borrowed it from a book I was reading. That being said, I don’t think the author is confusing God the Father and God the Son. Scripture teaches that while there is only one God, he exists in three persons. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are co-equal and co-eternal. The chart illustrates how Scripture describes the person and work of Jesus.
