The Promise of the Holy Spirit Part 2

Wednesday January 2, 2019

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

What Jesus said in the days of His earthly ministry was only part of the revelation that they were to receive. Three things were needed for the apostles to understand Jesus’ person and mission:  His death had to occur. He had to rise again to vindicate His claim and demonstrate His victory. The Spirit had to come (He would be sent by the Father … in My name, i.e., in Jesus’ place and for Him) and interpret the meanings of Jesus’ words and deeds (Blume).
