though true, it is insufficient to account for the treatment
of His descent as a new visitation and benediction of
God. The answer would seem rather to be that the
Holy Ghost was in Jesus Christ Himself, and could not be
given to the Church as a distinctively Christian gift, until
the first period of the Incarnation had been consummated
in the Ascension of the Son of Man. In Him dwelt all
the fulness of the Godhead bodily ; when the influence
of that Godhead was poured out upon the Church, it
came from the very heart of Christ, and was impregnated
with all the elements which made up the mystery and
beneficence of the Incarnation.' вАФ The Farad ete, p. 96.
