We tend to think of the Holy Spirit as the straggler of the Trinity, a latecomer in God’s interaction with the world. But we first meet the Holy Spirit in the second verse of the Bible, hovering there, speaking the world into existence. Christopher J. H. Wright begins here and traces the Holy Spirit through the pages of the Old Testament. We see the third person of the Trinity in the decrees of prophets and psalmists, in the actions of judges and craftspeople, in the anointing of kings, and in the promise of a new creation. The witness of all Scripture, from its first pages to its last, directs us to a Holy Spirit empowering the people of God and sustaining and renewing the face of the earth.
