  "Jesus answered and said to him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My Word. And My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him."(John 14:23)

  In John 14:23, we find Jesus, the Son, stating that He and the Father, will come to and make Our abode with, those who love Him. It is clear that Jesus is showing a distinction of persons between the Father & the Son, which is further backed up by 1 John 2:24, & Rev 3:21. This dispels the contention that Father, Son, & Holy Spirit are merely titles, aspects, or offices of God. Although the words Us and Our do not appear in the original manuscripts of John 14, it is clear from syntax, wording, and context, that the translation John 14:23, shown above, is correct and valid.

  In John 14:23 & 1 John 2:24, we see two persons of the Trinity named, the Son & the Father, in such a way as to show that they are separate persons. We know from a multitude of verses that the Father is God; and from other verses that Jesus is God. (See Jesus is God.) It is upon this distinction of persons, both of whom are named as God by numerous verses of the Bible, that the belief in a triune nature, trinity, of the Godhead is based.
