John 14:25-26

25 "These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.

26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."

in My name (v.26) — the Spirit enables us to know the Son and continues the Son's work.

  • Spirit of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:17-18)
  • Spirit of Jesus (Acts 16:7)
  • Spirit of Christ (Romans 8:9)
  • Spirit of Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:9)

teach you all things (v.26) — not everything there is to know, but everything necessary for spiritual life and growth.

bring to your remembrance all things (v.26) — testifying to the truth of the four gospels. Also see John 2:22; John 12:16.

The Son came in the Father's name (John 5:43). The Spirit comes in the Son's name. The Son makes the Father known to us. The Spirit makes the things of Christ known to us. The Son glorifies the Father. The Spirit glorifies the Son.
