Summary:

Key Scriptures: John 14:16-17 Passion

And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Savior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will be to you a friend just like me—and he will never leave you. The world won’t receive him because they can’t see him or know him. But you will know him intimately, because he will make his home in you and will live inside you.

(Bible References: John 14:25-26; 15:26; 16:7, 12-13)


  • The Greek word “paraklētos”:

◦ = Intercessor, Comforter, advocate, defense attorney, encourager; one called to stand next to you as a helper.

◦ para = along side; kletos = to come

◦ The translator chose the word Savior because one word alone is not enough to explain adequately the full meaning.
