John 14:17; 15:26; 16:13 —the Spirit of Truth
- v17 “the Spirit of truth”, whom the world cannot accept, because it does not see him or know him.
But you know him, because he resides with you and will be in you.
- v26 When the Comforter comes, whom I will send you from the Father—
“the Spirit of truth” who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me,
- v13 But when he, “the Spirit of truth”, comes, he will guide you into all truth.
For he will not speak on his own authority, but will speak whatever he hears, and will tell you what is to come.
