Easton's Bible Dictionary - Advocate
(Gr. John 14:16 ; 15:26 ; 16:7 , where the Greek word is rendered "Comforter," q.v.). It is applied to Christ in 1John 2:1 , where the same Greek word is rendered "Advocate," the rendering which it should have in all the places where it occurs. Tertullus "the orator" (Acts 24:1 ) was a Roman advocate whom the Jews employed to accuse Paul before Felix.
Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Advocate
Translation (consistently in NRSV and JB) of the Greek work parakletos [16:2) it is used for Job's "comforters." Clearly the work of the Holy Spirit is more than either of these: the Spirit is more than a "Counselor" and stronger than a "Comforter" (in our modern sense of the word). The Gospel passages certainly mean that the Holy Spirit is Helper, "another" Parakletos [ John 14:16 ), because Jesus had truly been that. The Spirit was promised to remain with Jesus' disciples always (14:16), to "teach" (14:26), to "testify" about Christ and to enable them to testify (15:26), and to "convict the world of guilt" (16:7). Then 1 John 2:1 speaks of Jesus as our continuing advocate with the Father, because we who are sinful find in him the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and thus have our acceptance with the Father.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Advocate
(paraklete ); one who pleads another's cause, exhorts, comforts, prays for another. The Holy Spirit (John 14:16; John 15:26; John 16:7); though our KJV always translates it "Comforter" when applied to Him, and "Advocate" when to Christ (1 John 2:1). But all the ideas included in the word apply both to the Holy Spirit and to Christ. For if Christ intercedes with God for us above, the Holy Spirit does so in us below; compare Romans 8:26; Romans 8:34 with Hebrews 7:25.
The Holy Spirit, testifying of Christ within us, answers, as our Advocate before our consciences, the law's demands; He, as the Spirit of prayer and adoption, inspires in us prayers which words cannot fully utter. If the Holy Spirit be named "another Comforter" by Jesus, yet He implies that Himself also is so, as indeed the Holy Spirit is His Spirit; absent in body, He is still present by His Spirit (John 14:16; John 14:18). Tertullus (Acts 24) is a sample of the advocates usually employed by clients in the Roman provinces.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Advocate
ADVOCATE (Gr. paraklçtos ). The word occurs only in the writings of St. John: four times in his Gospel ( John 14:16 ; John 14:26 ; John 15:26 ; John 16:7 ) of the Holy Spirit, and once in his 1st Epistle ( 1 John 2:1 ) of Jesus. It is unfortunate that our English Versions have rendered it in the former ‘Comforter’ (RVm [1] ‘or Advocate , or Helper , Gr. Paraclete ’) and in the latter ‘Advocate’ (RVm [1] ‘or Comforter , or Helper , Gr. Paraclete ’).
‘ Comforter ,’ though a true and beautiful designation of the Holy Spirit, is an impossible rendering. It is true that parakalein means either ‘comfort’ ( Mat 5:4 , 2 Corinthians 1:4 ; 2 Corinthians 7:6 ) or ‘call to one’s side’ ( Acts 28:20 ), but paraklçtos must be associated with the latter signification. It is a passive form, and denotes not ‘one who comforts ( parakalei )’ but ‘one who is called in to aid ( parakaleitai ).’ It was a forensic term, signifying the counsel for the defence and corresponding exactly to our ‘advocate’ (Lat. advocatus ). Singularly enough, the Greek-speaking Fathers mostly took the word in the impossible sense of ‘Comforter,’ influenced perhaps by the false analogy of Menahem ( Consolator ), a Jewish name for the Messiah. Cf. Cyril of Jerusalem, Cat . xvi. 20: ‘He is called Parakletos because He comforts ( parakalei ) and consoles and helps our infirmity.’ Were it understood in its literal sense of ‘Strengthener’ ( Confortator ), ‘Comforter’ would be a fair rendering; but as a matter of fact it originated in an error; nor does it suggest the true idea to the English reader. It should be observed that ‘comfortless’ in John 14:18 lends it no support. RV [3] gives ‘desolate’; literally, as in the margin of both Versions, ‘orphans.’
The substitution of ‘Advocate’ for ‘Comforter’ reveals a wealth of meaning in our Lord’s address to the Eleven on that night in which He was betrayed. During His earthly ministry He had been God’s Advocate with men, pleading God’s cause with them and seeking to win them for Him. He was going away, but God would not be left without an Advocate on the earth. ‘I will pray the Father, and another Advocate he will give you, that he may be with yon for ever the Spirit of Truth.’ Not received, because unrecognized, by the unspiritual world, the Advocate would be recognized and welcomed by believers (John 14:16-17 ; John 14:25-26 ). And He would testify to them about Jesus, the unseen Lord, and they would repeat His testimony to the world ( John 15:26-27 ). And He would make their testimony effective, ‘convicting the, world regarding sin, righteousness, and judgment’ ( John 16:8-11 ).
Jesus told the Eleven that it was ‘expedient for them that he should go away,’ since His departure was the condition of the advent of the Advocate (John 16:7 ); and 1 John 2:1 furnishes a profound commentary on this declaration. Jesus in the days of His flesh was God’s Advocate on the earth, pleading with men for God. The Holy Spirit has taken His place, and performs this office. But Jesus is still an Advocate. He is the Advocate of sinners up in heaven, pleading their cause with God, and, in the language of St. Paul ( Romans 8:34 ), ‘making intercession for them.’
And thus it was expedient for us that He should go away, that we might enjoy a double advocacy the Holy Spirit’s here, pleading with us for God; and that of Jesus in the court of heaven, pleading with God for us. There are three dispensations in the history of redemption, each richer and fuller than the last: (1) The OT dispensation, under which men knew only of God in high heaven; (2) that of the Incarnation, under which the Father came near to men in Jesus Christ and by His gracious advocacy appealed to their hearts; (3) that of the Holy Spirit, under which the Holy Spirit is the Father’s Advocate here, and Jesus ‘our Advocate above, our Friend before the throne of love.’

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - God, Advocate of
The promoter of the cause in a process of beatification or canonization. Advocate of the Church, lay official, in the Middle Ages, charged with the defense of Church temporalities, both in civilcourts and, in later times, in the field; he received in return part of the Church revenues. Under the feudal system the princes appointed the advocates by their own authority, and in many places the office became hereditary, which led to grave abuses.
Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Advocate
1 John 2:1 (a) This title is applied to CHRIST in His office of pleading for us before GOD. He pleads for GOD's people in the presence of GOD when Satan accuses them before GOD. He shows His wounded hands and feet as He defends His people before the Judge of all the earth. He shows by the wounds that He paid the debt for the believer whom He represents.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Advocate
is one who intercedes in behalf of another and is used to refer to Christ interceding with the Father on behalf of the sinners.
Old Testament While the word advocate is not found in the Old Testament, the concept of advocacy is found. Abraham intercedes with God in behalf of Sodom ( Genesis 18:23-33 ); Moses intercedes with God in behalf of the Israelites (Exodus 32:11-14 ); Samuel intercedes with God in behalf of the children of Israel (1 Samuel 7:8-9 ). Other examples may be found in Jeremiah 14:7-9 ,Jeremiah 14:7-9,14:13 ,Jeremiah 14:13,14:19-22 and Amos 7:2 ,Amos 7:2,7:5-6 . Modern translators often use “advocate” to refer to Job's desire for a heavenly attorney to plead his case even though he die (Job 16:19 ).
New Testament “Advocate” is the translation often given to the Greek parakletos in 1 John 2:1 , a word found elsewhere only in John's Gospel as a title referring to the Holy Spirit, and there translated “Helper,” “Comforter,” “Counselor,” or “Advocate” (John 14:16 ,John 14:16,14:26 ; John 15:26 ; John 16:7 ). Ancient Greeks used the term for one called in to assist or speak for another, frequently in a court setting. Rabbis transliterated the word into Hebrew, using it to denote an advocate before God. 1John portrayed a courtroom scene in which Jesus Christ, the righteous One, intercedes with the Father on behalf of sinners. Such a portrayal stands in line with Old Testament ideas of advocacy, but supersedes it. In contrast to Old Testament advocates, Jesus is both the one righteous Advocate and the “atoning sacrifice” (NIV) for the world's sins (1 John 2:2 ). 1 John 2:1 parallels other New Testament descriptions of Jesus' intercessory role ( Romans 8:34 ; Hebrews 7:25 ). See Helper ; Paraclete ; Intercession ; Jesus Christ , High Priest .

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Advocate
Title of Christ (1 John 2:1). The Greek word, parakletos, so rendered is the same as that transcribed Paraclete in Saint John's Gospel, 14, where Our Lord promises to send "another Paraclete" (advocate), the Holy Ghost. Christ as Advocate defends the cause of Christian believers against their accuser, the devil (Apocalypse, 12). He is called in 1 John 2, a just advocate: He claims that the virtue of His satisfaction be extended to all in fellowship with Himself. The word, which literally means "one called to one's side" to strengthen and plead, implies that the Christian effectually seeks His help.
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Advocate
-is one that pleads the cause of another. In a very particular manner, the Scripture applies this to the Lord Jesus Christ. Indeed, it is so peculiarly and personally his, that it expressly forms one of his divine offices. Hence, the apostle saith, "If any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, and he is the propitiation for our sins." (1 John 2:1-2)
It is very blessed to see the personal and peculiar fitness and suitability of the Lord Jesus Christ to this office, and in how endeared and affectionate a manner he is thereby recommended, and comes home with all the warmth of tenderness to our hearts. I persuade myself that I shall have the reader's pardon and indulgence, if I trespass for a moment, on dwelling a little more particularly, than the merely noticing it, on this sweet feature in the portrait of Our Lord.
That our poor nature, universally speaking, stands in need of an advocate, is unnecessary to insist, upon, for "we have all sinned and comeshort of God's glory." And therefore, he who undertakes to plead the cause of the sinner, must himself be sinless. And he must not only possess sufficient abilities to the office of a special pleader, but,he must know every person, and every case, with all the disadvantages of all the causes for which he undertakes. Neither is it sufficient, that he hath all these qualifications, and more than these, unless that he be lawfully constituted to the office. It is not enough, in our common courts of justice, between man and man, that many an able and a feeling heart could stand up for poor guilty criminals, and plead their cause. He that advocates for them, must have a legal call to the office, and be sworn into it, according to the laws of the court. It is most blessed, therefore, to see that in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ all these different qualifications meet and centre, and shine forth in one full constellation.
An attention to a few leading particulars, will make this appear abundantly plain and obvious to every beholder. The Redeemer's claim to this office of an advocate, and the only advocate of our poor nature, is founded on the call of JEHOVAH. We are told by God the Holy Ghost, (Hebrews 5:5-6) that Christ "glorified not himself to be made an High Priest, but was called of God, as was Aaron." And he was not only called to the office, but sworn into it, by the solemnity of an oath.-"The Lord sware, and will not repent; thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek." So then, it appears beyond all question and dispute, that JEHOVAH, who said unto him, "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee;" said also, "Thou art a priest for ever;" and confirmed it by his oath. I beg the reader to keep the remembrance of this everlastingly in view. Your Jesus, your advocate with the Father, is your sworn advocate, and by JEHOVAH himself. And as by reason of the sin of our nature, God our Father is the law adversary of every poor sinner; (see Matthew 5:25) so Christ is our law advocate, and fully and legally appointed to this office, by JEHOVAH himself. Sweet thought!
But we must not stop here, in examining into the right of Christ, for the exercise of this divine office, the advocate of his people. He is no less so, by virtue of his being the propitiation for our sins; and in a double sense in this particular, because, not only the infinite dignity of his person, and the infinite merit of his propitiation gives him this claim, but also he is the very propitiation which God "himself hath set forth, through faith in his blood." Let the reader consult those Scriptures for himself, which prove the certainty of these precious truths, and he will see how unanswerably conclusive they are. (Job 33:24; Isaiah 42:21; Matthew 17:5; Romans 3:25) Now, then, let me pause, and ask, Hath not this almighty advocate a right to plead for his own rights, and those of his people in him? Was it not an absolute promise, in the charter of grace, that "when he had made his soul an offering for sin, he should see of the travail of his soul, and be satisfied?" (Isaiah 53:10-11) And shall not the blessed Jesus stand up and plead for the fulfilment of those promises? Hath he, indeed, given himself as the sinner's surety "an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour?" and can he rest satisfied, till he hath brought all his ransomed people around him in glory?
Moreover, there is one point more to be considered in this subject of Christ's advocacy, which we have not yet even glanced at, though it forms a principal object, for which the Lord Jesus carries on his high priestly office, in the court of heaven, namely, the destruction of all his enemies, and the enemies of his dear people. When the Lord Jesus, by the Spirit of prophecy, spake of the purposes of his coming, it was for the overthrow of the empire of Satan, as well as the establishment of his own kingdom. "The day of vengeance (said Jesus) is in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come." (Isaiah 63:4) So, then, it must follow, that unless we can suppose what is impossible, that when Jesus returned to heaven he ceased to take concern in the exercises and sorrows and temptations of his redeemed upon earth, and that the triumphs of the powers of darkness engaged not the attention of the Lord to destroy: surely he is now, as much as ever, carrying on, by his everlasting intercession, all the grand purposes of his victory over hell, until he come, in the fulness of the times appointed, finally to crush the foe, and to root out of his kingdom "all things that offend." I must not stay to describe what the Scriptures of God so very largely and blessedly set forth, the numberless qualities of the Lord Jesus, in his abilities, and readiness, and grace, and a thousand endearing things beside, which render him so peculiarly suited to the office. The prophet sums up all in one, his character, in this department of it, when calling him the Wonderful Counsellor; and the Apostle no less, when declaring that "in Him are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." (Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 2:3) And if it were not for swelling the pages of a work that I must rather study to abridge, I might easily shew, that such are the powerful recommendations the Lord Jesus brings with him, to induce any, and every poor sinner, that is conscious of the want of an advocate, to plead his cause before God, that not a soul, earnest for his everlasting welfare, would cease a moment from putting all his concerns in the hand of such a wise, tender, and successful High Priest as Jesus. Indeed, indeed, it is most blessed to behold the Lord Jesus in this endeared character. All he undertakes is altogether free, "without money and without price." No case of his people, however desperate, he refuseth; and none that he undertakes can fail. Other advocates may, and indeed must, ultimately bring forth disappointment, but no cause put into the hands of Jesus can. And the gracious manner in which the Lord carries it on, is most blessed; for he makes every case which he takes up his own. He enters into all their concerns, gives them to see how much he sympathizes with them, during their exercises, and supports their souls with an abiding assurance, that he is everlastingly attentive to them. Not all the hallelujahs of heaven can make him for a moment intermit his overlooking either the persons, or the causes, of all his redeemed upon earth. For it is not their deservings, but his love; not what they have done, or can do for themselves, but what he can do for them, that becomes the standard of his grace. What they are, and what they merit, comes not into the amount. That they are his, and that he hath purchased their redemption, and received them as the gift of his Father; these are the motives which operate in the heart of Christ. He saith himself, in his pleadings for them before the throne, (for the words are already given to us) "Father, I will that they whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory which thou hast given me." (John 17:24)
Ye sinners in Zion! here bring all your causes. Come to Jesus and put every concern in his almighty hand. Jesus waits to be gracious. He can, and will save to the uttermost, all that come to God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. (Hebrews 7:25) Hail! thou glorious, gracious, lawful, and successful Advocate of my poor, soul!

or Paraclete , one that pleads the cause of another. ( 1 John 2:1 ) Used by Christ, (John 14:16 ; 15:26 ; 16:7 ) to describe the office and work of the Holy Spirit, and translated Comforter , i.e. (see margin of Revised Version) Advocate, Helper, Intercessor.

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Advocate
The word sometimes translated in the Bible as ‘advocate’ denoted a person who came and stood beside someone to help in a time of need. People today usually think of an advocate as one who pleads on behalf of another in a court of law, but only occasionally does the Bible use the word in this legal sense (e.g. 1 John 2:1). In most cases it uses the word in the broader sense of a counsellor or helper (e.g. John 14:26).
Jesus had been a counsellor or helper to his followers while he was with them, and promised that when he left them and returned to his Father, he would send them another counsellor, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit would dwell with Jesus’ followers, giving them the sort of teaching, guidance and help that Jesus had given them (John 14:16-17; John 14:26; John 15:26; John 16:7; cf. Matthew 10:19-20; Romans 8:26). (For further details see HOLY SPIRIT.)
While the Holy Spirit is within believers on earth, Jesus Christ appears before the Father as their advocate in heaven. Christians need this advocate because of the difficulties they face in a sinful world. Inevitably they will sometimes sin and as a result need God’s forgiveness. Their sin does not cause them to lose their salvation, but it spoils their fellowship with God. In Jesus they have a heavenly advocate who, when they confess their sin, brings their case before the merciful God and asks his forgiveness. Just as Jesus’ death and resurrection was the basis on which God accepted them as his people in the first place, so it is the basis on which God continues to forgive their failures (Romans 8:34; 1 John 1:9; 1 John 2:1-2).
Another picture of the risen Christ’s work on behalf of his people is that of high priesthood. In this picture Jesus’ work is similar to that of an advocate. He is his people’s great high priest, who understands their needs and appears in the presence of God to plead for them (Hebrews 7:25; Hebrews 9:24). (For further details see PRIEST, sub-heading ‘The high priesthood of Jesus’.)
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Advocate, the,
παρακλητος.This word signifies one who takes up the cause of another. 1 John 2:1 . The same Greek word is translated 'Comforter' in John 14:16,26 ; John 15:26 ; John 16:7 . From this we learn that the word applies both to the Lord Jesus and to the Holy Spirit. "If any man sin we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous." This applies to Christ in the glory: He is not an advocate for the unconverted, but for the Christian if he should sin; and it is with the Father, for the one who sins is a son. Sin breaks the communion, and the advocacy of Christ is to restore it. He is the Paraclete in heaven, who takes up the cause of the saint, and the Holy Spirit is the same on earth to secure the spiritual welfare of God's people. See HOLY SPIRIT.

Advocate - Advocate (Gr. ]'>[1] ‘or Advocate , or Helper , Gr. Paraclete ’) and in the latter ‘Advocate’ (RVm
The substitution of ‘Advocate’ for ‘Comforter’ reveals a wealth of meaning in our Lord’s address to the Eleven on that night in which He was betrayed. During His earthly ministry He had been God’s Advocate with men, pleading God’s cause with them and seeking to win them for Him. He was going away, but God would not be left without an Advocate on the earth. ‘I will pray the Father, and another Advocate he will give you, that he may be with yon for ever the Spirit of Truth. ’ Not received, because unrecognized, by the unspiritual world, the Advocate would be recognized and welcomed by believers (John 14:16-17 ; John 14:25-26 ). ...
Jesus told the Eleven that it was ‘expedient for them that he should go away,’ since His departure was the condition of the advent of the Advocate (John 16:7 ); and 1 John 2:1 furnishes a profound commentary on this declaration. Jesus in the days of His flesh was God’s Advocate on the earth, pleading with men for God. But Jesus is still an Advocate. He is the Advocate of sinners up in heaven, pleading their cause with God, and, in the language of St. There are three dispensations in the history of redemption, each richer and fuller than the last: (1) The OT dispensation, under which men knew only of God in high heaven; (2) that of the Incarnation, under which the Father came near to men in Jesus Christ and by His gracious advocacy appealed to their hearts; (3) that of the Holy Spirit, under which the Holy Spirit is the Father’s Advocate here, and Jesus ‘our Advocate above, our Friend before the throne of love

That our poor nature, universally speaking, stands in need of an Advocate, is unnecessary to insist, upon, for "we have all sinned and comeshort of God's glory. He that Advocates for them, must have a legal call to the office, and be sworn into it, according to the laws of the court. The Redeemer's claim to this office of an Advocate, and the only Advocate of our poor nature, is founded on the call of JEHOVAH. Your Jesus, your Advocate with the Father, is your sworn Advocate, and by JEHOVAH himself. And as by reason of the sin of our nature, God our Father is the law adversary of every poor sinner; (see Matthew 5:25) so Christ is our law Advocate, and fully and legally appointed to this office, by JEHOVAH himself. Sweet thought!...
But we must not stop here, in examining into the right of Christ, for the exercise of this divine office, the Advocate of his people. (Job 33:24; Isaiah 42:21; Matthew 17:5; Romans 3:25) Now, then, let me pause, and ask, Hath not this almighty Advocate a right to plead for his own rights, and those of his people in him? Was it not an absolute promise, in the charter of grace, that "when he had made his soul an offering for sin, he should see of the travail of his soul, and be satisfied?" (Isaiah 53:10-11) And shall not the blessed Jesus stand up and plead for the fulfilment of those promises? Hath he, indeed, given himself as the sinner's surety "an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour?" and can he rest satisfied, till he hath brought all his ransomed people around him in glory?...
Moreover, there is one point more to be considered in this subject of Christ's advocacy, which we have not yet even glanced at, though it forms a principal object, for which the Lord Jesus carries on his high priestly office, in the court of heaven, namely, the destruction of all his enemies, and the enemies of his dear people. " (Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 2:3) And if it were not for swelling the pages of a work that I must rather study to abridge, I might easily shew, that such are the powerful recommendations the Lord Jesus brings with him, to induce any, and every poor sinner, that is conscious of the want of an Advocate, to plead his cause before God, that not a soul, earnest for his everlasting welfare, would cease a moment from putting all his concerns in the hand of such a wise, tender, and successful High Priest as Jesus. Other Advocates may, and indeed must, ultimately bring forth disappointment, but no cause put into the hands of Jesus can. (Hebrews 7:25) Hail! thou glorious, gracious, lawful, and successful Advocate of my poor, soul!...
Intercession - His pleading as Advocate is for His believing people, claiming their justification as a matter of right, on the ground of His righteousness. "We (who walk in the light as He is in the light) have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous" (1 John 2:1, compare 1 John 1:7; Romans 8:33-34; Hebrews 7:25).

Job, Theology of - ...
The identity of Job's "witness" or "legal Advocate" (16:19) in heaven is disputed. Job's appeal to God (17:3) to act as his Advocate by laying down a pledge (i. However, Job's wish for an impartial "mediator" between God and himself (9:33) and the context of 16:21 suggest that Job is using a legal metaphor for an Advocate who would plead for him with God. This anticipates the role Christ now plays as intercessor (see Hebrews 7:25 ) and Advocate (1 John 2:1 ). By again using the legal metaphor, Job expresses his conviction that he would be vindicated as innocent (which in an earthly lawsuit would require a vindicator or legal Advocate). Job believes that surely there is a legal Advocate in his "lawsuit" against God. One must not assume that Job had any knowledge of Christ as his Redeemer (a truth revealed only in the New Testament); nonetheless the paramount fulfillment of Job's need for a mediator and legal Advocate has now been found in the person of Jesus Christ

The Spirit is the Advocate of Christians simply because in His work it becomes clear to all that He comes from above and is no merely human possession. Nevertheless He could not be the Advocate of the disciples unless His presence and action were unmistakably related to Jesus; and this relation is made manifest by the fact that the Spirit is possessed by the disciples only, and not by the world (John 14:17, John 16:7), and that He speaks as the witness of Jesus, and creates faith in His mission (John 15:26, John 16:14)

Cloud - He, our Redeemer and Advocate, the Lord who is our Brother, is now within the cloud that covers Sinai, that leads through the wilderness, that shines above the Mercy-seat; that is to say—in all that by which God draws near to man (in His law as in Sinai, in His providences as in the shepherding of Israel, in religious life and worship as in the Holiest of all), Christ is present, and the love which He has made known, bestowed and sealed
Petilianus, a Donatist Bishop - Augustine on the Unity of the Church, written between the second and third of them, and intended to answer the question, "Where is the church?"...
In the inquiry of 411 at Carthage Petilian took a leading part and was chiefly remarkable for ingenious quibbling and minute subtlety on technical details of procedure—using, in short, as Augustine said afterwards, every artifice in order to prevent real discussion; and on the third day losing his temper and insulting Augustine personally in a coarse and vulgar manner; appearing throughout as a pettifogging Advocate, adroit but narrow, dishonest and suspicious of dishonesty in others; spinning out the time in matters of detail, taking every advantage he could, fair or unfair, and postponing, though with much ostentatious protest to the contrary, the real matters in dispute
Asia - Thus Lightfoot, an Advocate of the N

Security of the Believer - See Advocate ; Comforter ; Helper
Aaron - One of the most general statements is Hebrews 2:17, where the phrase ‘things pertaining to God’ covers both sides of the relations between God and man, though prominence is given, as in the passages that speak of Christ as our Advocate with God, to the work done by Him as representing men
Germanus, Saint, Bishop of Auxerre - He went to Rome, studied for the bar, practised as an Advocate before the tribunal of the prefect, on his return married a lady named Eustachia, and rose to be one of the six dukes of Gaul, each of whom governed a number of provinces (Gibbon, ii
Holy Spirit - (For the question whether the word Paraklçtos is to be translated ‘Comforter,’ or ‘Advocate,’ see art. Advocate
Alexander, Bishop of Hierapolis Euphratensis - of Hierapolis Euphratensis and metropolitan in the patriarchate of Antioch; the uncompromising opponent of Cyril of Alexandria, and the resolute Advocate of Nestorius in the controversies that followed the council of Ephesus, A
Truth - When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who comes from the Father, he will testify on my behalf
Macrina, the Younger - Of these her father selected a young Advocate, of good birth and position, and when he was cut off by a premature death, Macrina resolutely refused any further proposals of marriage ( ib
Marriage - Those who Advocate this position do not believe Jesus intended to establish a legalistic approach to marriage that would condemn every specific remarriage as an adulterous relationship. In between are many Christians who Advocate a mutual submission in love as the ideal (Ephesians 5:21 ), but also believe the husband has special leadership responsibilities. Advocates of strong male authority interpret these passages in light of the various biblical passages reflecting the husband's authority (1 Corinthians 14:34-35 ; 1 Timothy 2:11-14 )
Mediator - This they declare with great variety of expression: that "he suffered for sins, the just for the unjust," 1 Peter 3:18 ; that "he gave his life a ransom," Matthew 20:28 ; Mark 10:45 : 1 Timothy 2:6 ; that "we are bought with a price," 2 Peter 2:1 ; Revelation 14:4 ; 1 Corinthians 6:20 ; that "he redeemed us with his blood," "redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us," 1 Peter 1:19 ; Revelation 5:9 ; Galatians 3:13 ; that "he is our Advocate, intercessor, and propitiation,"...
Hebrews 7:25 ; 1 John 2:1-2 ; that "he was made perfect, through sufferings; and being thus made perfect, he became the author of salvation," Hebrews 2:10 ; Hebrews 5:9 ; that "God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them," 2 Corinthians 5:19 ; Romans 5:10 ; Ephesians 2:16 ; and that "through death he destroyed him that had the power of death," Hebrews 2:14 . Christ, then, having thus "humbled himself, and become obedient to death, even the death of the cross; God, also, hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name;" hath commanded us to pray in his name; constituted him man's Advocate and intercessor; distributes his grace only through him, and in honour of his death; hath given all things into his hands; and hath committed all judgment unto him; "that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow," and "that all men should honour the Son even as they honour the Father," Php_2:8-10 ; John 3:35 ; John 5:22-23
Loose - CHRIST on the Throne, as our Advocate with the Father, is represented by the living bird and the living goat
John, First Epistle of - The believer's joy might be full, through being in communion with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ by means of inspired and apostolic revelation, He as Advocate maintaining the same
Sacrifice - ...
An Advocate for the sufficiency of reason (Tindall) supposes the absurdity prevailed by degrees; and the priests who shared with their gods, and reserved the best bits for themselves, had the chief hand in this gainful superstition
Heaven - There he is sat down upon his throne, crowned with glory and honour, as king upon his holy hill of Zion, and continually officiates as our great High Priest, Advocate, and Intercessor, within the vail
Severus Sulpicius, an Historian - He became an Advocate and married a woman of consular rank and wealth, who did not long survive the marriage
Restitution - Those who Advocate it usually fall back upon conjectures suggested by the hidden possibilities of the future life or general considerations with regard to the grace of Christ and the Fatherly love of God
Timothy, the Second Epistle to - ) But now three years had elapsed; and Paul as a Roman citizen was treated with greater respect for legal forms, and was acquitted on the "first" charge (2 Timothy 4:17) of instigating the Christians to incendiarism before his last departure from Rome; it was then that Alexander the coppersmith witnessed against him (2 Timothy 4:14); no patron dared to Advocate his cause, though being probably a client of the Aemilian clan, from whence he derived his name Paul, he might naturally have looked for advocacy (2 Timothy 4:16-17)
Jesus, the Lord - He is also the Advocate, Intercessor, and High Priest on behalf of those who believe on Him, who are still in weakness on earth and need His support and aid
Judgment, Last - Besides, Christ's being a judge, doth not divest him of the character of an Advocate, whose part is rather to conceal the crimes of those whose cause he pleads, than to divulge them; and to this we may add, that the law which requires duty, and forbids the contrary sins, is not the rule by which they who are in Christ are to be proceeded against, for then they could not stand in judgment; but they are dealt with according to the tenor of the Gospel, which forgives and covers all sin
Alexandria - The consequence was, that Egypt was soon filled with religious and philosophical sectaries of every kind; and particularly, that almost every Grecian sect found an Advocate and professor in Alexandria
Court Systems - Powerful third parties were involved in the first two cases; Joab set up the audience with David, and the Shunammite had an Advocate present in the person of Gehazi, Elisha's servant
Devil - ...
(2) From Christ to the millennium he is judicially cast out as "accuser" of the elect; for Christ appearing before God as our Advocate (Hebrews 9:24), Satan the accusing adversary could no longer appear against us (Romans 8:33-34)
Flavianus (4) i, Bishop of Antioch - When the brief fit of popular madness was over and the Antiochenes awoke to their danger, Flavian at their entreaty became their Advocate with the emperor, starting immediately on his errand of mercy (Chrys
Hospitality - Although the narratives of the patriarchal period Advocate receiving the foreigner/stranger at least on a temporary basis (Genesis 18-19 ), landed Israel showed some ambivalence toward foreign strangers by favorably distinguishing the sojourner, who made some allegiance to the Israelite community of faith, from the foreigner, who might represent some threat to cultic purity
Maxentius, Joannes, Presbyter And Archimandrite - Meanwhile Justinian changed his opinion of the monks and became their Advocate (Justinian
Galatians, Letter to the - People who Advocate another gospel confuse the church (Galatians 1:7 )
Hopkinsians - The Hopkinsians warmly Advocate the doctrine of the divine decrees, not only particular election, but also reprobation; they hold also the total depravation of human nature, the special influences of the Spirit of God in regeneration, justification by faith alone, the final perseverance of the saints, and the consistency between entire freedom and absolute dependence; and therefore claim it as their just due, since the world will make distinctions, to be called Hopkinsian Calvinists
David - The modesty and prudence of his behaviour, and his approved courage and resolution, gained him the confidence and friendship of Jonathan, the king's eldest son, "Who loved him as his own soul," became his Advocate with his father, and obtained from him a promise, confirmed by an oath, that he would no more attempt to destroy him
Priest - As representative of men, He approaches God with an adequate offering, and continues permanently to act as our Paraclete or Advocate (1 John 2:1)-an office which includes, though it is not confined to, His priestly work. ...
(5) At His death the sacrificial part of Christ’s priestly work was completed (Hebrews 7:27; Hebrews 9:28); and after His ascension He entered (Hebrews 6:20, Hebrews 9:12; Hebrews 9:24, Ephesians 4:10) and ‘passed through the heavens’ (Hebrews 4:14) to the very presence of God (Hebrews 9:24), where from His throne on the right hand (Hebrews 1:3; Hebrews 8:1) He continues to act as the Priestly Representative of men, interceding for them (Hebrews 7:25, Romans 8:34), Himself the permanently valid propitiation for their sins (1 John 2:2), and therefore the triumphant Advocate of the case of every one in fellowship with Him
Samaria - That there is some measure of truth in these allegations is quite probable, but there has unfortunately been no Advocate for the defence, no historian who has eloquently presented the facts from the Samaritan point of view
Stoning - ...
(b) The view that the proceedings were quite regular and orderly throughout has also been Advocated. Although Jews were a party to the outbreak of violence, the stoning was simply the method by which the fanatical mob of a heathen city vented their rage upon an Advocate of the Christian faith
History - (3) The interpreter must discern the context within Israel's history to insure that he or she does not Advocate a divine concession but God's full intention (Matthew 19:4-9 )
Eternity - This, it is true, is as much a definition of the moon, as of infinity of duration; but it is valuable, as it shows that, in the view of this great man, though an Advocate of the nunc stans, "the standing now," of eternity: we must abandon the term duration, if we give up the only idea under which it can be conceived
History - (3) The interpreter must discern the context within Israel's history to insure that he or she does not Advocate a divine concession but God's full intention (Matthew 19:4-9 )
Eusebius (60), Bishop of Nicomedia - At the oecumenical council of Nicaea in 325 Eusebius defended the excommunicated presbyter and was the Advocate and interpreter of his opinions before the council. Thenceforward Eusebius used his great power at court and his ascendancy over the mind of Constantine to blast the character and quench the influence of the most distinguished Advocates of anti-Arian views. Hefele supposes that Constantine regarded Eusebius as the great Advocate of Christian unity
Stoics - An Advocate of poverty and self-abnegation, he became wealthy and maintained his position at Court by abject flattery and perhaps worse
Prudentius, Marcus (?) Aurelius Clemens Prudentius - He speaks of his early life as stained with much sinfulness, but must have been held in high respect, for after practising as an Advocate, he twice held an important civil office, and was at last raised to some high position at the emperor's court (cf
Basilius, Bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia - ]'>[1] His father, whose name was also Basil, was an Advocate and teacher of rhetoric whose learning and eloquence had brought him a very large practice. No sooner did his determination become known that he was beset by the remonstrances of his friends entreating him, some to continue the profession of rhetoric, some to become an Advocate. All the best of the people, together with the clergy and the monks, warmly Advocated Basil's election, which was vigorously opposed by other classes
Confession - ) That Christ is our life, truth, peace, and righteousness; also our pastor, Advocate, sacrifice, and priest; who died for the salvation of all those that believe, and is risen for our justification. ) In like manner, we firmly hold that there is no other Mediator and Advocate with God the Father, save only Jesus Christ
Pelagianism And Pelagius - Coelestius, originally an Advocate, was led by Pelagius to a strict religious life, and very soon became an ardent disciple and a propagandist of his master's views. Augustine was then deeply involved in the Donatist controversy, but learned that Pelagius and his friends had begun to Advocate the opinion that infants were not baptized for the remission of sins, but for the sake of obtaining a higher sanctification through union with Christ. The book of Pelagius, if we may rely upon the fairness of Augustine's quotations, which there is no reason to distrust, Advocated in the interests of morality the adequacy of human nature for good action
Sanctification, Sanctify - recall-recall the teaching of Hebrews in speaking of ‘the propitiation’ made by our ‘Advocate,’ whose ‘blood cleanses from all sin’ and thus brings the sinner into ‘fellowship with the Father
Judges, Theology of - The story appears to Advocate loyalty from the northern tribes to a family from Bethlehem, rather than to a family from the corrupt Gibeah (Saul and his descendants)
Eunomius, Bishop of Cyzicus - These proceedings struck dismay into the Arian clique at Antioch, and Eunomius, now a deacon, was sent to Constantinople as their Advocate
Hebrews, Epistle to - A formidable array, however, of NT critics, especially Continental, now Advocate the theory that, in spite of appearances to the contrary, the original readers of our Epistle were Gentiles or mainly Gentiles ( e
Satan (2) - (109:6), in the first two chapters of the Book of Job and in Zechariah 3 it is used in a technical or legal sense as the equivalent of ἀντίδικος, an opponent in law, an Advocate, whose function it is to plead for the condemnation of an accused person
Testimony - Job, for example, appeals to God to defend him as his witness, Advocate, intercessor, and friend (Job 16:19-21 )
Henoticon, the - 499—Laurentius an Advocate of union, and Symmachus its uncompromising opponent
Christ - ...
An Advocate with the Father, 1 John 2:1
Ecclesiastes, Theology of - For instance, while the Book of Proverbs Advocates a total commitment to the way of wisdom, Qohelet says, "Do not be overrighteous, neither be overwise" (7:16) and concludes that in the long run wisdom can get us no further than folly (2:12-16). What does Qohelet Advocate in terms of toil? It is hard to say. It Advocates a "right relationship" with God (fear God) that manifests itself in an obedient lifestyle (keep his commandments ) and cites the coming judgment as a motive
Priscillianus And Priscillianism, Priscillian - Modifying and framing the Oriental doctrines into a system of his own, he soon became their able exponent and Advocate. Amongst these was Dictinnius, a Priscillianist bishop, author of The Scales (Libra), wherein Priscillianist opinions were expounded and Advocated
David - in His Races - You learn to pronounce by your patrons complaining that they cannot hear you, and that they must carry their cases to another Advocate unless you learn to speak better
Letters - It is, indeed, acknowledged by those who Advocate the priority of the hieroglyphic to the alphabetic signs, that the number of ideas which could thus be expressed is few; and this the Marquis Spineto considers as a presumptive proof of his theory
Guilt (2) - It is the confession and forgiveness of sins which the First Epistle represents as effecting the cleansing from sin and unrighteousness through the sacrificial blood and heavenly intercession of our Advocate with the Father (1 John 2:1-2)
Ascension - One of the meanings of ‘Paraclete’ is ‘Advocate’ or ‘Intercessor,’ and Jesus is our Paraclete (1 John 2:1), as He Himself implies in calling the Holy Ghost ‘another Paraclete’ (ἄλλον Παράκλητον, John 14:16)
Assumption of Moses - Joshua mourns that he is not able to take Moses’ place as guide and teacher, prophet and Advocate
Prayer - They are given in honour of the intercession of Christ, man's great "Advocate;" and they are given, subordinately, in acceptance of the prayers of Christ's church, and of righteous individuals
Propitiation - The Johannine conception of propitiation is inseparably associated with ‘Jesus Christ the righteous,’ in whom ‘we have an Advocate with the Father’ (1 John 2:1), implying that the righteous nature of God involves a righteous order in the Divine method of dealing with sin
Biblical Theology - Both church and world could gain transforming conviction from the fruit of a discipline humble enough to discern, and brave enough to Advocate, the ancient yet contemporary verities that biblical theology is charged to bring to light
John, Theology of - This describes the Spirit as an Advocate, a defender who will stand with the disciples, strengthening them before the world (15:18-27; 16:8-10)
Gregorius Nyssenus, Bishop of Nyssa - He was one of ten children of Basil, an Advocate and rhetorician of eminence, and his wife Emmelia (Greg
Jerusalem - This view has much to commend it, although it is not admitted by those who Advocate that the Third Wall followed the line of the present wall in its entire course (Smith, Jerusalem, i
Socialism - Luke (Luke 4:18), that He had come to preach good tidings to the poor; to His mother His coming meant the exaltation of them of low degree (Luke 1:52); to His forerunner also it meant a certain levelling of existing conditions (Luke 3:5), and indeed John the Baptist himself Advocated that voluntary communism which is an undisputed characteristic of all early Christian teaching (‘He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none,’ etc. In the same way he does not Advocate land-nationalization when he says, ‘Deus noster terram hanc possessionem ominum hominum voluerit esse communem, et fructus omnibus ministrare: sed avaritia possessionum jure distribuit’ (In Psalms 118:8; Psalms 118:22); but goes on to say that for this reason the poor have a just claim on the rich to give them a share of what was meant for all
John, Gospel of (Critical) - The style of his writing suggests that he was trained as an Advocate
Christ in Reformation Theology - This Christ is to be invocated, and He hath promised that He will hear our prayers, and liketh this worship, to wit, that He be invocated in all afflictions: “If any man sin, we have an Advocate with God, Jesus Christ the righteous” ’ (1 John 2:1)
Christ in the Middle Ages - 662), though a staunch Advocate of Dyothelitism, taught a form of mysticism derived largely from the pseudo-Dionysius
Gregorius (14) Nazianzenus, Bishop of Sasima And of Constantinople - The warm friend of Basil, he was no less an admirer of the bishop, and an Advocate for the rights of authority
Chrysostom, John, Bishop of Constantinople - When Chrysostom commenced practice as an Advocate, his gift of eloquence speedily displayed itself
Eusebius of Caesarea - of Antioch, was a staunch Advocate of the Nicene doctrine and a determined foe of the Arians
God - Exemplifications of the divine mercy are traced from age to age, in his establishing his own worship among men, and remitting the punishment of individual and national offences in answer to prayer offered from penitent hearts, and in dependence upon the typified or actually offered universal sacrifice:—of his condescension, in stooping to the cases of individuals; in his dispensations both of providence and grace, by showing respect to the poor and humble; and, principally, by the incarnation of God in the form of a servant, admitting men into familiar and friendly intercourse with himself, and then entering into heaven to be their patron and Advocate, until they should be received into the same glory, "and so be for ever with the Lord:"—of his strictly righteous government, in the destruction of the old world, the cities of the plain, the nations of Canaan, and all ancient states, upon their "filling up the measure of their iniquities;" and, to show that "he will by no means clear the guilty;" in the numerous and severe punishments inflicted even upon the chosen seed of Abraham, because of their transgressions:—of his long-suffering, in frequent warnings, delays, and corrective judgments inflicted upon individuals and nations, before sentence of utter excision and destruction:—of faithfulness and truth, in the fulfilment of promises, often many ages after they were given, as in the promises to Abraham respecting the possession of the land of Canaan by his seed, and in all the "promises made to the fathers" respecting the advent, vicarious death, and illustrious offices of the "Christ," the Saviour of the world:—of his immutability, in the constant and unchanging laws and principles of his government, which remain to this day precisely the same, in every thing universal, as when first promulgated, and have been the rule of his conduct in all places as well as through all time:—of his prescience of future events, manifested by the predictions of Scripture:— and of the depth and stability of his counsel, as illustrated in that plan and purpose of bringing back a revolted world to obedience and felicity, which we find steadily kept in view in the Scriptural history of the acts of God in former ages; which is still the end toward which all his dispensations bend, however wide and mysterious their sweep; and which they will finally accomplish, as we learn from the prophetic history of the future, contained in the Old and New Testaments
Tertullianus, Quintus Septimius Florens - 2), and the legal fence and juridical style of the Advocate are observable throughout his apologetic and polemical writings. Of Julius Asper (proconsul in 205 or 206) it is told that not only did he refuse to force a Christian to sacrifice who under the torture had lapsed from the faith but publicly expressed regret to his assessors and the Advocates at having to deal with such cases (ad Scapulam c
