Sloan, Daniel R., "John 14:17 and the Holy Spirit in the Gospel of John" (2011). Senior Honors Theses. 263.
This thesis examines John 14:17, along with other passages in John, and identifies whether or not the disciples were indwelled before Jesus’ glorification or after his glorification. It does this through defining of Holy Spirit terms, a study on the Holy Spirit in John, and word studies on different words throughout John. The conclusion of the paper shows that the Holy Spirit could not indwell the disciples before the glorification of Jesus and gives evidence to show why this could not occur.
