Just along another line: it seems reasonable to me to distinguish between
the Spirit of God and the Holy Spirit to the point where one could almost
say the Spirit of God gives the spirit of holiness. This helps somewhat, I
think, to make sense of Apollos, and of the Ephesian twelve in Acts 19 who
did not know there was a spirit of holiness (of course they knew there was
the Spirit of God). Is that what Theophylactus of Bulgaria was on about
many moons ago when he said: ALLO DE ESTI TO ZEEIN TWi PNEUMATI KAI ALLO TO
SCEIN PNEUMA hAGION?

How does one understand the genitive of Acts 2:38: THN DWREAN TOU hAGIOU
PNEUMATOS?

Just a thought.
