This entry is part 10 of 12 in the series The Gospel of John

Have you ever wondered why it is that Christian people feel they are never alone? It’s true, you know—we are never completely alone. In the night of the last supper, Jesus told his disciples:

If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:15–17 KJ2000

It is curious that John calls it another comforter. The Greek word means advocate, and he uses the same expression in 1 John to refer to Jesus Christ. So Jesus is one advocate, and the Spirit of truth is another. But it doesn’t end there. Jesus urges the Father on our behalf, he encourages us, and we encourage one another. We’ll see this explained in the opening to 2 Corinthians.
