John 16:13-15 (NASB)

13     “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

14     “He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you.

15     “All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.

What is meant with the term "the spirit of truth"? Are there several "spirits", such as "spirit of truth", "spirit of wisdom", "holy spirit"; etc? Is this "spirit" a living being of some kind? or perhaps something like an "attitude/interest for truth"? or what?

Who will be led or guided by this "spirit of truth" (in other words, who are the "you" being addressed)?

What is the "all truth" mentioned into which these "you" would be guided? does it mean these "you" would be knowing everything that is true, or what?
