    Then why did he ask God to forgive the people saying:

    Father forgive them, for they know not what they do

    Couldn't he just say, I forgive you.

    cos Jesus is the physical and therefore completely separate manifestation of the godhead in human form although simultaneously existing as the trinity in the form of the holy spirit and God the father?

    He does, in other places.

    According to the Christian view, Jesus is God, but there is some distinction. God isn't just Jesus, he's the Father and the Holy Spirit too. Jesus is often said to be in prayer - that would be meaningless if there wasn't some separation between God the Father and God the Son. As would Jesus' humanity in general.
