"...and will be in you.""And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Comforter, to be with you for ever, even the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you". John 14.16-17.
Does anyone know Greek? I am interested in the Greek word translated as "in." Does the Greek word actually mean literally "inside"?
What does "dwells with you" mean exactly? The Comforter is dwelling with the disciples--how is he dwelling with them? And Jesus says that His disciples "know him." How do they "know him"?"you know him, for he dwells with you"
Notice that Jesus says "if I do not go away" and "but if I depart."Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you [John 16:7].
It sounds like there is a question in Jesus' mind that He might not have to depart. I thought of His prayer to the Father that the cup be removed, but John does not include this in His Gospel. What you think that Jesus means?
