Through all the problems and difficulties of life, God has given us a provision—His indwelling Presence. Using the five NT occurrences of the Greek noun paraklētos, all of which appear only in the writings of the Apostle John (Jn. 14:16; 14:26; 15:26; 16:7–8; and 1 John 2:1), God gives us provisions for the five basic difficulties in the Christian life. This will encompass 18 studies to come.
Scriptures for Study: In preparation for our studies, read the five occurrences of paraklētos and record your reflections.
