Another Helper: The Spirit of Truth

John 14:12-31

In this passage, Jesus promises he will ask the Father to send another helper, the Holy Spirit. Last week we considered the Holy Spirit as the presence of Christ dwelling in us. Today we will focus on the Spirit’s role of teaching us truth. Throughout his writings, John emphasizes truth and love, which he shows us are intertwined, interdependent and inseparable.
