Scriptures


Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows. When His mother Mary had been

betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found

to be with child by the Holy Spirit.  – Matthew 1:18  NAS


"Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife;

for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit."

The angel of God speaking to Mary, Matthew 1:20 NAS

Scholars

"The spirit of God was [is] the operational presence and power of God..."

Anthony Buzzard, Jesus Was Not a Trinitarian, Restoration Fellowship, p. 152

Holy spirit is understood in the OT sense of God’s

creative and active power present to human beings.

Fitzmeyer on Luke 1:35



"[God] is never used in the New Testament to speak of the holy spirit."

Karl Rahner, Theological Investigations, Helican, 1963, 1:143

Karl Rahner



Translators prejudice the reader against the original understanding of the holy spirit

as the personal spirit of God, [God's] influence and power in action, by using masculine

pronouns for the spirit. The spirit may be legitimately thought of as "it" rather than "he."

Anthony Buzzard, Jesus Was Not a Trinitarian, Restoration Fellowship, p. 152
