Veni, Sancte Spiritus, Come, Holy Spirit, is an invocation that has echoed down during the centuries as Christians have recalled, celebrated, and expected the appearance of the Spirit-not simply that of the nice ceremonial dinner of Pentecost, but in addition within the numerous locations and occasions within which God has breathed the Spirit anew into the background of God's humans and the historical past of God's global. This selection of essays seeks to attract cognizance to that groovy number of advents of the Spirit, and by means of so doing to supply an orientation for students and scholars alike to the research of Pneumatology, the disciplined mirrored image at the Christian doctrine of the Holy Spirit. those essays have been initially ready for a symposium on Pneumatology that was once held at Marquette college in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on April 17-19, 1998. the crowd of overseas and ecumenical students that convened for this event-historians, biblical exegetes, philosophers and systematicians-were invited either as a result of their attractiveness of their respective fields in addition to their widely known contributions to the learn of this doctrine.

Example text

Even when God takes some of the spirit that is on Moses and distributes it to the elders in Num 11:25, it is still God’s spirit, not Moses’ spirit, that is being distributed. The one possible exception to this rule is found in 2 Kings 2:9, where Elisha tells Elijah he wishes to receive a double portion “of your spirit,” and the guild prophets later say, “The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha” (2:15). Elijah had told Elisha, “Ask for whatever I may do for you, before I am taken from you” (2:9). Is this to suggest that Elijah bestowed his spirit upon Elisha?
