Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the person of the Holy Spirit. Although it is obvious that the word "Spirit" must be kept detached from any notion of a created being, nevertheless because some kind of analogy exists between a created being and God it will not be unreasonable to explain them generally. The Spirit of God, then, or the Holy Spirit, is the third hypostasis, that is, person, of the Godhead or the most holy undivided Trinity, who proceeds by means of inexpressible spiration from God the Father and the Son effortlessly and from eternity. The definition of a person, and everything belonging to a person, demonstrate and prove that He is a hypostasis, or person, and a divine one at that. The Holy Spirit is singly distinguished from the Son, because the Son is only from the Father, but the Holy Spirit is from the Father and the Son jointly.

Keywords: eternity; Father; Holy Spirit; Son; Spirit of God; Trinity
