This week we explore Paper 194 - Bestowal of the Spirit of Truth. The Paper describes what happened at Pentecost as many original believers in Jesus gathered in Jerusalem. As they prayed together they became filled with a new consciousness of spiritual joy and power, followed by an urge to publicly proclaim Jesus' gospel message. The Spirit of Truth, the promised new teacher, had indeed arrived.

The apostles emerged from forty days in hiding and began to preach their new message in the temple. Peter delivered an appeal which won more than two thousand souls to the Kingdom. The Jewish leaders were astounded at the apostles' boldness.

Jesus' followers quickly discovered that the story of his resurrection held great allure. The gospel of the Fatherhood of God quickly changed into the gospel of the risen Lord Jesus Christ. The apostles proclaimed the facts of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection, and the fervent hope of his imminent return.

Pentecost was a call to spiritual unity among believers. Jesus' Spirit of Truth girds believers with unfailing forgiveness, matchless goodwill, and boundless love and set them free from discrimination based on sex, race, culture, and social status.

The life and death of Jesus eternally prove that goodness and faith will always prevail over evil and doubt. Jesus revealed God to mankind and the Spirit of Truth reveals Jesus to mankind. The mission of the Spirit is to foster and personalize truth and to destroy mortal feelings of orphanhood. The Spirit of Truth purifies the human heart and leads us to commit to the will of God and the welfare of humankind. The joy of this Spirit is a tonic for health, a stimulus for mind, and an unfailing energy for the soul. The Spirit of Truth brings a restatement of the message of Jesus to every new generation of believers, providing personal enlightenment and guidance for the spiritual difficulties of mortal life.
