In the King James version

the phrase - holy spirit - appears three times in the Old Testament...

* Psa 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. * Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them. * Isa 63:11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? Where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?

The King James version uses the phrase "Holy Ghost" in the New Testament... always capitalised, but that phrase never appears in the Old Testament. The more common Old Testament reference to the Holy Spirit is "Spirit of God," which appears fourteen times.

A:In the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit is only mentioned three times, but 'God's spirit' is also mentioned. These references are more consistent with an attribute or emanation of God. There can be no concept of a godhead or of the Holy Spirit as a person of the godhead in the Hebrew Bible, since the concept of the Holy Trinity is entirely foreign to Judaism. If the 'Greek Bible' refers to the second-century-BCE Greek translation of the Hebrew scriptures, the same applies. Even the New Testament never actually refers to the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Christian godhead, or 'Holy Trinity'.

The gifts are mentioned in the new testament and not in the old testament. Mostly in the books of Paul.

The difference is that the Holy Spirit was there only when you needed help in the Old Testament and in the New Testament, the Holy Spirit was in all believers at any time.

In the King James translation, "Holy Ghost" is mentioned eighty-nine times; all in the New Testament.AdditionallyThe exact phase "Holy Ghost" is not mentioned in the Old Testament, however, many Christian biblical scholars say that references to the "Spirit of the Lord" (e.g. Judges 3:10, Ezekiel 11:5, etc.) or similar phrases in Old Testament is the same reference to the third person of God (namely the Holy Ghost) in New Testament. This view is generally not accepted among non-Christians.

Jesus mentioned the Holy Spirit a NUMBER of times. (I cannot list all of them) 1. From when He was baptized, he said He was instantly filled with the Holy Spirit. 2. Almost 10 times, he told his disciples that the Holy Spirit would come upon them and sanctify them. 3. He asked the Holy Spirit to comfort both him and his disciples. 4. After he was risen from the dead, he again said the Holy Spirit would descend upon his disciples and cause them to speak in tongues. Again, Jesus talked about the Holy Spirit many times.

In the Old Testament the Holy spirit was given rarely upon certain individuals at certain times, although He undoubtedly remained upon a number of persons for an extended duration. In the New Testament, the Christian believer is permanently indwelt by the Spirit of God, as long as they are a believer in truth and not a counterfeit. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is in fact one distinguishing mark of a person being a believer. 'He who does not have the Spirit is none of His,' i.e. is not a believer. Thus, the work of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament era is of a more permanent and lasting nature than that of the Old.

The Comforter is the Holy Spirit.

Not by the name "Trinity" but the Holy Spirit is mentioned in the first verse of the Bible and Jesus visits Abraham and Samsons parents, as well as Shadrak, Meshak and Abendigo (don't know correct spelling on their names). God is also mentioned of course numorous times so I think that the Holy Trinity is mentioned often, though not by name.Another Answer:The term 'holy trinity' is not Scriptural. It is a vain attempt by men in the 4th Century, AD, to describe the Godhead - confusing God's Holy Spirit as a person.The Holy Spirit is not a separate person or being, but is rather the power and the means by which God transmits His will, influence and presence.Rather than describing the Holy Spirit as a distinct person or entity, the Bible most often refers to it as, and connects it with, God's divine power (Zechariah 4:6; Micah 3:8). Jewish scholars, examining the references to it in the Old Testament Scriptures, have never defined the Holy Spirit as anything but the power of God.In the New Testament, Paul referred to it as the spirit of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Informing Mary that Jesus would be supernaturally conceived in her womb, an angel told her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you . . . ," and he defined this as "the power of the Highest," which "will overshadow you" (Luke 1:35). Jesus always said He is His Father's Son and no one elses.
