The Promise of the Holy Spirit

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

This is the first of several passages on the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room Discourse. John, to this point has said little about the Holy Spirit. The words to Nicodemus (3:5–8) were private and 7:39 pointed ahead to Pentecost. Jesus prayed to the Father to send the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, “He would ask the Father, and He will give them/us another Helper/Comforter.”
