This selection of essays seeks to attract awareness to that groovy number of advents of the Spirit, and via 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 foreign and ecumenical students that convened for this event-historians, biblical exegetes, philosophers and systematicians-were invited either as a result of their recognition of their respective fields in addition to their well known contributions to the research of this doctrine.

Sample text

Because the spirit of God is hovering over it, chaos becomes promise. ” The figures are of course mixed—not uncommon in biblical discourse. But inasmuch as the image of the bird is so closely attached to the verb, and it is difficult to think of a wind hovering, I would prefer “spirit,” which suggests more a caring, life-giving activity than that of wind. ” This text is the poetic crown of the priestly tradition, which was influenced by or at least related to the priest-prophet Ezekiel, who gave great emphasis on the Spirit recreating the people (Ezek 36-37).

Thus the dove over the Jordan would announce a new creation inaugurated at the baptism of Jesus. Others connect the dove with the “Spirit of God” that “hovered” over the waters of the first creation, the Hebrew verb for “hovering” being that typically used for a bird hovering over its brood and encouraging them to fly (Deut 32:11). 10 As the dove brought news of a new creation to the ark, so the Holy Spirit proclaims that the world will be made anew beginning with the baptism of Jesus. g. The Paraclete The dove image has enhanced the picture of the Holy Spirit but not sufficiently to demand that the Holy Spirit be a separate hypostasis, a person.

Jesus is conceived by the Holy Spirit (Mt 1:20; Luke 1:35). ), who then leads him into the desert testing (Mk 1:12-13; Mt 4:1; Luke 4:1), then into Galilee (Luke 4:14), where Jesus himself proclaims his anointing by the Holy Spirit (Luke 4:18). If Genesis 1 is in any way in the background of the baptism of Jesus (as may be suggested by the dove), it must be remembered that there the Spirit of God precedes the creative, cosmifying word of God. One might be led to conclude that the only texts which see Jesus receiving the Spirit, or the Spirit acting on Jesus, concern his earthly state.
