what if god was one of us
What if God was one of us?
  • He was one of us!
  • We ask:
    • How did he live?

the procession debate
The “Procession” Debate
  • 15:26 “When the Advocate comes, who I will send to you from the Father – the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father – he will testify about me.”
  • Holy Spirit proceeds from Father OR
  • Holy Spirit proceeds from Father and Son
  • Debate about the nature of God, how God functions

 Lead to Great Schism in 1054 – Eastern Orthodox & Western (now: Catholics + Protestants) Churches

  • Text is not about how God functions
  • Text shows us the unity of Father, Son & Spirit

    • We are guilty of sin

    • Our judgments are mistaken
  • Holy Spirit guides our understanding (16:13c)
    • 16:3c “he [the Spirit] will tell you what is yet to come”
    • Does NOT mean that the Spirit is a fortune teller!
    • Holy Spirit helped disciples understand the significance of Jesus’ coming death and resurrection
    • Holy Spirit helps us understand everything in light of the gospel

  • Does NOT mean that he makes us materially comfortable
  • recall John 14:25-27 “The Advocate, the Holy Spirit… will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give… as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
  • Holy Spirit brings us peace / shalom in a hurting & broken world
