Question 24
How are these articles divided?
Into three parts; the first is of God the Father, and our creation; the second of God the Son, and our redemption; the third of God the Holy Ghost, and our sanctification.

Question 25
Since there is but one only divine essence, why speakest thou of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost?
Because God has so revealed himself in his word,b that these three distinct persons are the one only true and eternal God.
