The last few weeks, Eastertide have been exploring the nature of Christ. First of all we looked at how He was in His Risen nature truly human – able to eat, be touched, talk, share experiences, have breakfast. In this second half of Lent we are looking at Jesus in His Divine Nature, as the Second Person of the Trinity. So in week 4 of Eastertide we saw Jesus using the divine name , ‘I am’, and last week we continued in this theme.
This week we begin the preparation for the Sending of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, and in this context we are introduced to God as Trinity: ‘I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you for ever, that Spirit of truth.’
