Jesus is a character from the Bible's New Testament. He is the Son of God. Some examples given by St. John refer to Jesus in much the way others refer to God. In order to understand how Jesus and God are related, one must understand the trinity. God and Jesus are two separate entities, but like the spirit and soul of man, are one. The trinity consists of the Father (God), the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is God come to earth. He is God's representative on earth, so a person seeking after Jesus is also seeking after God.
