Besides, it wouldn't have made sense in context to say "the Father," because God wasn't the Father of the Samaritans. "Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O Lord, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting." (Isaiah 63:16). Use some common sense, man. Your understanding of the Trinity seems pretty weak. Saying that Jesus is the same as the Holy Spirit is heresy.
God is a Spirit. Unless the Son of God is also that Spirit He would never be God. The name from everlasting is YHWH (John 8:24; 2 John 9; 1 John 5:12; Romans 8:9).
