    Who sends the Counselor/Comforter/Advocate?

    John 14:

    16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever.

    John 16:

    7 Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit that I go away, because if I donít go away the Counselor will not come to you. If I go, I will send Him to you.

    Is this a contradiction?

    Thank you.

    Jesus knows the will of the Father. It is Jesus's action that leads to the provision of the Counselor.

    Second, Jesus is part of the Trinity but was not able to reveal that in a distinct fashion before Pentecost.

    Third, there could be noted a difference between a person who does the giving and the person who does the sending. Think of a package sent in the mail -- "can you send this for me?

  3. Amen Cow Poke amen'd this post.
