During elders quorum today, the instructor commented that Jesus is the Second Comforter. It seemed a bit odd to me, but the Bible Dictionary supports this idea.
It seems at odds with a couple of other scriptures. Consider John 14:16:
I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter
If the first comforter is the Holy Ghost, why does Jesus refer to him as another comforter? Another implies that a comforter already existed.
How do we reconcile this apparent discrepancy?
