Three main points: When the Helper comes he will do three things: 1. He will convict the world (i.e., bring a law-suit against the world) 2. He will guide (lead) his disciples into all truth 3. He will glorify Jesus There is a progression to these three: conviction first, truth second, glory third. Object of conviction is the world, object of the guidance is the disciples, object of glory is Jesus. Conviction : What does conviction mean? Three ways the Spirit convicts the world: 1. Concerning sin - the reason he convicts the world concerning sin is because the world does not believe in Jesus. Conviction has a connotation of assurance (Heb. 11:1). Therefore the Spirit is giving assurance that sin is most expressly manifest in not believing in Jesus. 2. Concerning righteousness - the reason he convicts the world concerning righteousness is because Jesus goes to the Father and his disciples will no longer see him. The Spirit will give assurance (conviction) to the world concerning righteousness because there will no longer be a visible portrait of perfect righteousness on earth (i.e., Jesus). Therefore the Spirit will assure the world that perfect righteousness is found in the Jesus that the disciples proclaim. 3. Concerning judgment - the reason he convicts the world concerning judgment is because the ruler of this world (Satan) is judged. The Spirit gives assurance to the world that their god and king (Satan) has no power to save them. He stands judged by Christ. Guidance : How does the Spirit give guidance? By guiding disciples into truth. He does this in two ways: 1. By speaking what he hears. Who is he hearing from? What does speaking have to do with guiding? 2. By declaring to disciples the things that are to come. How does a disciple's knowledge of what's to come give that disciple an advantage? The reason this is to the disciple's advantage is because of the authority upon which the Spirit speaks, namely, not his own. On whose authority does the Spirit speak? Glory : How does the Spirit glorify Jesus? By taking what belongs to Jesus and declaring it to his disciples. What belongs to Jesus? Why is the Holy Spirit's declaration of those things to a disciple's advantage? Jesus duplicates the phrase so there must be something about the Spirit's taking from what belongs to Christ (which is also everything that belongs to the Father) and declaring it to disciples. __________________________________ Witherington: conviction (elencho) has clear legal overtones. The idea is cross-examining and ultimately putting arguments to shame. Bruce: ...in the present context the Spirit glorifies the Son by unfolding clearly the meaning of his person and work. Beasley-Murray: The fundamental concept in v. 8 and its elaboration in 9-11 is that the world is on trial before God. This parallels with the world's trial of Jesus in which it found him to be guilty and deserving of death. The Spirit's work is to reveal the fundamental wrongness of the world's decision. v.9: The prime sin of men in John is unbelief in Jesus as he reveals himself. The implication is that they disbelieve not because of ignorance but because of willful rejection. Convict in a legal sense: expose the error of something. v.10: The HS exposes the error of the world's estimation of righteousness. When the world looked at Jesus upon the cross they viewed it as a sure indicator that the was UNrighteous, but on the contrary it was the means of the Father exposing Jesus' perfect righteousness. v.13 emphasis is on "all" Hendrickson: The reason the Helper cannot come until Jesus departs is because his departure is via the cross and therefore the Spirit cannot come until the full redemptive work of Christ is accomplished. v.13: guiding literally means leading the way. Notice he does not drive, he leads.
