Luke 1:15

This website has been moved to:

Luke 1:15: For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.
Luke 1:41: And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Luke 1:67: Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying:
Luke 2:25: And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
Luke 11:13: If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

John 7:39: But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
John 16:7: Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

Luke says that the Holy Spirit was given to some before Jesus' ascension, but John says that the Holy Spirit wasn't given until after His ascension.

The word 'given' in the second half of John 7:39 was added by the NKJV translators to make it more readable. The original Greek just read, "the Holy Spirit was not yet".

This more accurate translation doesn't conflict with the Holy Spirit having come upon some earlier on.
