Part of the Triune Nature of God

Author's Bias: Interpretation: conservative

Distinguished among persons of the Trinity

The Holy Spirit is distinguished among persons of the Trinity.

Jesus distinguishes the Holy Spirit from God and Himself (John 14:16; John 15:26; John 16:7).

The apostles distinguishes the Holy Spirit from God and Jesus (Matt 3:16-17; 28:19; Rom 15:16; 2 Cor 1:21-22; 2 Cor 13:14; Eph 3:14-17; 2 Thess 2:13-14; 1 Pet 1:2).

There is a hierarchy in the functional roles that each Person of the Trinity play.

The Father sent the Son whose purpose was to reveal the Father. The Son sent the Spirit whose purpose was to reveal the Son.

James Packer portrays another perspective, "God the Father is the giver of the Holy Scripture; God the Son is the theme of Holy Scripture; and God the Spirit is the author, authenticator, and interpreter, of Holy Scripture."

But there is no hierarchy in the nature of each Person of the Trinity.

In nature, they are equal in divinity, divine source and essential for the activities of God.
