This is implied by portions of Jesus’ “farewell discourses” in John 13–17, esp. 14:15–31 and 16:5–24. For a perceptive analysis indebted to Raymond Brown, see Robert Kysar, John: The Maverick Gospel, rev. ed. (Louisville: Westminster/John Knox, 1993), pp. 97–112. Kysar concludes that, for John, Christ “has reappeared in the form of the Paraclete” (Spirit); and Christian “experience of the Spirit is their experience of the reappeared Christ” (p. 111).
