First I gave some indication that man is created in three parts - spirit and soul and body.
Then I tried to show that in God's full salvation there is a plan for each of the three parts. The spirit needs regeneration. The soul needs transformation. And the body needs transfiguration.
I tried to show that this salvation begins with the resurrection of the deadened and comatose deepest part of man, the human spirit.
This website is very good on the subject of regeneration
Most of the other passages were on the difference and relationship between the captital S Spirit
which is the Third of the Triune God (Holy Spirit) and the small s spirit
which is the human spirit.
My final verses were on regeneration of the comatose human spirit causing the Lord Jesus Christ to be with the believer's spirit. He enlivens the spirit. He joins to the spirit to make the human spirit "one spirit"
with the eternal Divine Spirit which is Christ Himself -
