Gospel for the Trinity Sunday Year C

John 16:12-15

Summary: Jesus acknowledged the disciples' limitations in understanding and promised the coming of the Spirit of truth. This Spirit would guide them into all truth, speaking not independently, but revealing future events and glorifying Jesus by sharing His teachings. Jesus affirmed that the Spirit's revelations are from His divine authority.

Promise of the Holy Spirit

Jesus said to his disciples: “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.

But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth.

He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming.

He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.

Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.”
