The Trinity doctrine is the foundation for the Christian faith. Like God, it is crucial to understand exactly how he relates to us and how it relates to him. But it increases the most complex questions. How will God be two and three? Trinity is a contradiction? If Jesus is God, why would he record the Gospel records of God's prayer?

Although we can not fully understand the Trinity, we can answer these questions and come to the solid understanding of what it means to be three.

Divine essence is not something that is divided between three persons, but "three persons" are not completely divided into
