Readings: John 15:26-16:15

Quotes:

D. A. Carson from the Pillar Commentary Series:

“In today’s ears, ‘Comforter’ sounds either like a quilt or like a do-gooder at a wake, and for most speakers of English should be abandoned… In secular Greek, parakletos primarily means ‘legal assistant, advocate’ i.e. someone who helps another in court, whether as an advocate, a witness, or a representative.”
