Brown speaks to scholars and laypeople alike.

“The Paraclete is the presence of Jesus while Jesus is absent, so that the ‘I am coming back to you’ in 18 is no contradiction to the idea that the Paraclete is being sent. And since the Father and Jesus are one, the presence of the Father and Jesus (23) is not really different from the presence of Jesus in the Paraclete.” (Page 643)

“But if Jesus is a high priest here, it is not primarily in the sense of one about to offer sacrifice, but more along the lines of the high priest described in Hebrews and in Rom 8:34—one who stands before the throne of God making intercession for us.” (Page 747)

“Verse 31 is the only passage in the NT that states that Jesus loves the Father.” (Page 656)

“We shall see in App. V that the Spirit of Truth is a Paraclete precisely because he carries on the earthly work of Jesus. The Paraclete/Spirit will differ from Jesus the Paraclete in that the Spirit is not corporeally visible and his presence will only be by indwelling in the disciples. The OT theme of ‘God with us’ (the Immanuel of Isa 7:14) is now to be realized in the Paraclete/Spirit who remains with the disciples forever.” (Page 644)

“The simplest explanation of the footwashing, then, remains that Jesus performed this servile task to prophesy symbolically that he was about to be humiliated in death. Peter’s questioning, provoked by the action, enabled Jesus to explain the salvific necessity of his death: it would bring men their heritage with him and it would cleanse them of sin.” (Page 568)

He died in 1998.
