I also would ask what the explanation is for the pregnancy experienced by Mary {wife of Joseph} if it is the case that the trinity are all the same since this would make Jesus the father of himself.

The thing I would like know is when did Jesus become the Son? Was He always the son or was that status achieved at His incarnation? John indicated that pre flesh, Jesus was the Word. So it's possible that Jesus' status in the God-head up to His incarnation was Word and not Son. Now if that is true then there was no Father until the Incarnation(one cannot be a father before one has a child). There was just "God the spirit" and "God the word" - a "Dinity". Which leads me to conclude that at the incarnation( some may say at Nicene) God simultaneously became Son and Father and the Trinity was born - two became three.

If I am wrong and the Trinity has always existed, what's the purpose of having a father and a son, what distinguishes the father from the son?
