TYPOLOGY OF THE UNNAMED SERVANT & THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Fathers of the Church saw the Unnamed Servant as a symbolic "type" of God the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the only person of the Holy Trinity who does not have a personal name. Compare the major players in this narrative with the Most Holy Trinity and the Church:
|Just Father||Abraham||Yahweh, God the Father|
|Righteous Son||Isaac||Jesus the Son|
|Servant||Unnamed Servant||Holy Spirit|
|The Bride||Rebecca||The Church|
"The Unnamed Servant" is a name that
the Fathers of the Church used for God the Holy Spirit. WHY? What is his
mission in the New Covenant?
Answer: He is the only person of the Trinity not to have a personal name. It is His mission to bring the "Bride"= the Church, to the Bridegroom = Christ! "However, when the Spirit of truth comes he will lead you to the complete truth..." John 16:13 [also see John 14:26; 15:26].
