Thomas Schreiner – How Do Jesus and the Spirit Relate?

13 Feb


If it follows the pattern in the Gospels and Luke-Acts (Matt. 3:11; Mark 1:8; Luke 3:16; John 1:33; Acts 1:5; 11:16), Jesus is the one who baptizes in or with the Spirit. The great work of the Spirit, then, is not independent of Jesus but is produced by Jesus. Indeed, as the exalted Lord, he pours out the life-giving Spirit (1 Cor. 15:45).
