John 16:4-33:

- The spirit of truth is more advantageous than the present Christ.
- Christ is now in each person who has spirit which enables him to teach his disciples more effectively than when he was here on earth.
- Disciples have the responsibility to witness the gospel to others, but the holy spirit has the responsibility to convict the hearer.
- The spirit has no separate will or personality; rather, it serves as a means for Jesus to communicate with and empower his disciples.
