The Holy Trinity
Persons of the Holy Trinity in a little more depth
The Christian doctrine of the Trinity holds that God is one God, but three coeternal consubstantial persons or hypostases—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—as "one God in three Divine Persons". The three persons are distinct, yet are one "substance, essence or nature" (homoousios).
In this context, a "nature" is what one is, whereas a "person" is who one is. This video uses an analogy by C.S. Lewis in "Mere Christianity" Part two deals with problem analogies and the historical background of the doctrine.
Understanding the Trinity as "good grammar" or good "God talk"
