Body, physical, is the five senses of a living human.
Soul is the will, emotions and personality which is invisible but real. "Man became a living soul." Gen 2:7b
Heart is the one thing that separates humans from gorilla's that have the same physical equipment but no ability to think, reason and choose.
Spirit is the eternal part of every human that goes to heaven or the lake of fire (Rev 20).
Large one is the human body in which all others are contained.
Second largest one is the living Soul " the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground (BODY), and breathed into his nostrils and man became a living SOUL," the affections, appetites and desires, the essence of humanity. Jesus warned, "Fear them who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy the soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:28
Heart is in a smaller circle, is contained in the brain that is hard-wired by God to think, reason and choose which the gorilla is not equipped to do. "Eat not the bread of him who hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats for as he THINKETH (where?) in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23 6:-7a Jesus warned, "Those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the HEART, and they defile a man for out of the heart proceeded evil thoughts" Matthew 15:19-20a "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know (understand) it?" Jeremiah 17:9 kjv
Your spirit is in the inner circle, the very center of our being where God's Holy Spirit dwells IN a child-of-God. The (Holy) Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit and we ARE the children-of-God." Romans 8:16 also see 1 John 5:6
