THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on The First Epistle of St. John the Apostle (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

5:8 The spirit and the water and the blood: As the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, all bear witness to Christ's divinity; so the spirit, which he yielded up, crying out with a loud voice upon the cross; and the water and blood that issued from his side, bear witness to his humanity, and are one; that is, all agree in one testimony.
