Jesus and the Promised Holy Spirit in John’s Gospel


Event Details


According to John’s Gospel, Jesus promised that the Father would send the Holy Spirit.
He made this promise during his farewell discourse and prayer at the Last Supper
(John 13:31-17), and it was fulfilled at his Cross and Resurrection (John 19:30; 20:22).
As we prepare for Pentecost, let us discover and ponder St. John’s theology of the Holy Spirit.
