VAN DE BEEK, A.. The spirit of the body of Christ: the Holy Spirit's indwelling in the church. Acta theol. [online]. 2013, vol.33, n.1, pp.252-265. ISSN 2309-9089.

Contrary to present-day tendencies in theology, the author argues that the church is the exclusive place of the work of the Holy Spirit, with reference to early church fathers such as Cyprian and Augustine, and to the New Testament. The Spirit is the presence of Christ who indwells his body. Therefore, the concept of social Trinity is rejected. As the Spirit of the Crucified, the Spirit displays the same strength in weakness: a pneumatologia crucis is the consequence of a christologia crucis as aspects of a theologia crucis. Specific attention is paid to I Corinthians.

Palavras-chave : Holy Spirit; Church Trinity; Pneumatology; Heilige Gees; Kerk; Drie-eenheid; Pneumatologie.
