Jesus and the Spirit

Theologian C. Baxter Kruger writes:

According to the Scriptures, Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, baptized in the Spirit, led and empowered by the Spirit, given great joy by the Spirit, cast out demons by the Spirit, heard his Father in the Spirit, and offered himself to his
Father by the power of the Spirit.  From his conception to his death, resurrection, and ascension, Jesus’ life was thoroughly filled with the Holy Spirit. Epiphanius, one of the early church theologians, spoke of the Holy Spirit as “in the midst of the Father and the Son” and as “the bond of the Trinity.”  The Holy Spirit is always in the middle of Jesus’ fellowship with his Father.
