Example text

Gal 4:6) and since this is the Spirit of “his Son,” clearly the Christian’s prayer to the Father is a participation in Jesus’ own experience of the Father. ’ The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ” (Rom 8:15-17). We have access in one Spirit to the Father (Eph 2:18). There is a rarely noticed Lukan motif that echoes the Pauline one here. In Luke 11 the disciples observe Jesus praying and ask him to teach them how to pray.

The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ” (Rom 8:15-17). We have access in one Spirit to the Father (Eph 2:18). There is a rarely noticed Lukan motif that echoes the Pauline one here. In Luke 11 the disciples observe Jesus praying and ask him to teach them how to pray. He gives them the Lord’s prayer. But his response to their inquiry does not end there. He gives them additional advice about perseverance in prayer, with a final encouragement to ask with the assurance of receiving, and then, “If you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more with the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him” (Luke 11:13).

But there are other texts, some of which we have cited, where the Spirit is prior in agency to Jesus and even acts upon him. 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.
