Paraclete

PARACLETE păr’ ə klēt (παράκλητος, G4156, advocate). John is the only author in the NT to use the term parákletos (tr. counselor in RSV; comforter in KJV). In 1 John 2:1 he applies it to the exalted Lord; in the gospel he employs it four times (John 14:16, 26; 15:26; 16:7) to denote Jesus’ description of the [[Holy Spirit]] who should continue His ministry to the disciples.
