Definition by Etymology or Root Meaning (#4)
The Hebrew and Greek words for “Spirit” come from roots meaning air, breath, or wind. So, is the Holy Spirit God’s breath?

The biblical words for "Spirit" derive from words meaning blow, breath, wind, and the like. This etymology does not mean that the Holy Spirit is God's breath or a force that emanates from God.

Definition by Parallelism (#3)
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.” Does this mean that the Holy Spirit is an impersonal power of God?

Why the parallelism between the Holy Spirit and the power of God in Luke 1:35 does not prove that the Holy Spirit is God's power rather than a divine person.

The Holy Spirit isn't given a personal name like “Jesus,” isn't mentioned in Paul’s “grace and peace” salutations, and so on. So what?

Neuter Pneuma and Neuter Pronouns Mean Not a Person (#1)
Is the Holy Spirit an “it”?
