On several occasions and in many ways, the New Testament teaches clearly that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are three distinct beings who function with absolute unity of purpose as the Godhead. Chart 12-1 identifies key passages in the New Testament that describe in detail the divine greatness and the infinite atonement of Jesus Christ. This chart should be read in conjunction with chart 8-16, a listing of the divine names and titles of Jesus. Chart 12-2 collects references that focus on the attributes and activities of God the Father, especially noting his concerns, gifts, love, and relationships. Chart 12-3 gives attention to the Holy Ghost, perhaps the least understood member of the Godhead. His roles in the process of revelation, church leadership, spirituality, daily life, and eternal salvation are gathered and classified. These charts show how the members of the Godhead work closely together in their common cause of bringing to pass the immortality and eternal life of all the human family.
