    advocate

    A translation of the Greek ‘Paraclete’, used in the gospel and first epistle of John for the Spirit (e.g. John 14: 16, NRSV, REB) who is to continue within the Church the teaching of Jesus—insights that were only possible to believers after the Resurrection (John 16: 13). The term is derived from the lawcourts and means the counsel for the defence, who stands alongside the accused, and to that extent the AV ‘comforter’ (John 14: 16) conveys part of the meaning.
