What does Paraclesis mean?

‘Paraclesis’ is inspired by and built around the Greek word ‘Paraklesis’:

PARA: ‘to be with’, ‘alongside’
KALEO: ‘to call’ or ‘to come’
PARAKLESIS: ‘one who comes alongside’.
In its various forms this word can be found over 140 times in the New Testament.

To summarise: Paraclesis means ‘people coming alongside people’
