A-Z: General definitions: Breath


The Hebrew word used in the Bible can mean 'breath', 'wind' or 'spirit'. 'Breath' draws together the ideas that God breathed his spirit into humankind when he created them (Genesis 2:7). After the resurrection, Jesus 'breathed' on his disciples saying 'Receive the Holy Spirit' (John 20:22). The Holy Spirit of God is associated with wind, unseen but powerful in Acts 2:2-4.
