Overview

In this work, renowned New Testament scholar C. K. Barrett examines the understanding of the Holy Spirit as it is presented in the Gospels. Applying his encyclopedic knowledge of first-century Jewish and Roman sources, Barrett examines how the concept of the Holy Spirit would have struck the original readers of the Gospel.
