Bible Study: The Holy Spirit – The Person of the Holy Spirit – Lesson #2

Lesson 2:   The PERSON of the Holy Spirit    

The Holy Spirit is seemingly the least understood of the members of the Trinity.  Although many churches in the modern era TALK about the Spirit, the vast majority of them focus on the “power” and the “gifts”, rather than the Person and Ministry of the Spirit.  And even then, they produce a lot of unbiblical information on the “power” and “gifts” that leads to a very unbalanced understanding of what Christianity is really all about.

Hopefully, this study will help us gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is not “the Force”; nor is it an impersonal “energy” like electricity or gravity.  It is not morally or ethically neutral.  The Spirit is a Person of the Triune God, with the SAME attributes as the Father and the Son that define their deity.
