Fuller Perspective

John 16:12 and 13 After his ascension and the outpouring of the spirit Jesus did communicate much more about the spirit and many other matters via the spirit and the mouth's of his apostles.

II Corinthians 3:3 "Spirit of the living God"

II Corinthians 3:6 - Old Covenant - New Covenant
- Letter Kills - Spirit Gives Life

Verses 7 and 8 - Ministry of Death - Ministry of Spirit

Verse 9 - Ministry of Condemnation - Ministry of Righteousness

II Corinthians 3:17 "The Lord is the spirit"

When we read the word "spirit" in Paul's epistles we can consider that he was possibly referring to what is stated here in II Corinthians 3. The "spirit" is the spirit of the living God, the new covenant is called the ministry of the spirit, the Lord is the spirit.

Romans 7:6 Serve in newness of spirit

Romans 8:1 and 2 The law of sin and death is associated with the flesh inherited from Adam. The law of the spirit of life comes from Christ.

Romans 8:3-11 To obey the spirit is referring to the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 5:1-ff To walk by the spirit includes walking by the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus, the new covenant, the ministry of the spirit, the ministry of righteousness and the Lord. Indeed after the ascension Christ provided a much fuller perspective.
