Many ask: “What is a Paraclete?” The term “Paraclete” is derived from the Koine Greek word “paráklētos,” signifying one who consoles or comforts, encourages or uplifts and hence refreshes, and/or intercedes as an advocate. “Paraclete” appears in the Gospel of John where it may be translated into English as counselor, helper, encourager, advocate or comforter. The early church identified the Paraclete as the Holy Spirit. Christians continue to use the term Paraclete as a title for the Spirit of God.
