    To Insight777 - The comforter is not the bible. The comforter is the Holy Spirit which has been given unto us.

    We are assured by Jesus' saying in verse 26: These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    V7, The Apostles said Jesus taught in parables. I think the Comforter is symbolic for the Bible.
    The Bible is carried through the centuries for spiritual comfort and truth. Jesus gives us this path to follow him until the end of days. Jesus will return because God loves the human creation He made. Because of evil lust for power a great final war created by man destroys the earth and all on it.
