the third Person of the adorable Trinity.

His personality is proved (1) from the fact that the attributes of personality, as intelligence and volition, are ascribed to him (Jn 14:17, 26; 15:26; 1Cor 2:10, 11; 12:11). He reproves, helps, glorifies, intercedes (Jn 16:7-13; Rom 8:26). (2) He executes the offices peculiar only to a person. The very nature of these offices involves personal distinction (Lk 12:12; Acts 5:32; 15:28; 16:6; 28:25; 1Cor 2:13; Heb 2:4; 3:7; 2 Pet 1:21).

His divinity is established (1) from the fact that the names of God are ascribed to him (Ex 17:7; Ps 957; comp. Heb 3:7-11); and (2) that divine attributes are also ascribed to him, omnipresence (Ps 1397; Eph 2:17, 18; 1Cor 12:13); omniscience (1Cor 2:10, 11); omnipotence (Lk 1:35; Rom 8:11); eternity (Heb 9:4). (3) Creation is ascribed to him (Gen 1:2; Job 26:13; Ps 10430), and the working of miracles (Mt 12:28; 1Cor 12:9-11). (4) Worship is required and ascribed to him (Isa 6:3; Acts 28:25; Rom 9:1; Rev 1:4; Mt 28:19).
