Where did this come from?
I noticed that the King James Version is one of the few bibles that refer to the Spirit of God as a Holy Ghost.
But what I do not understand is why change when the reference to Him in John 4:24
“God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
Ghost by defination is
1. the soul of a dead person, a disembodied spirit imagined, usually as a vague, shadowy or evanescent form, as wandering among or haunting living persons.
2. a mere shadow or semblance; a trace: He’s a ghost of his former self.
3. a remote possibility: He hasn’t a ghost of a chance.
4. (sometimes initial capital letter) a spiritual being.
5. the principle of life; soul; spirit.
Does this do justice to GOD?
If you have any information regarding the reason behind using the Holy Ghost rather than Holy Spirit in the King James version bible please share.
Ty for looking into it.
