I never really thought about it before but I wonder why some say spirit and some say ghost. Something else for me to research.

@Arella Mae,
As I am sure you know, the Epistle to the Hebrews was originally written
in Greek and the word your author has translated as "person" is
(transliterated) "hypostasis". Here is a cut-and-paste from dictionary.com.

1. Metaphysics .
a. something that stands under and supports; foundation.
b. the underlying or essential part of anything as distinguished from
attributes; substance, essence, or essential principle.
2. Theology .
a. one of the three real and distinct substances in the one undivided
substance or essence of God.
b. a person of the Trinity.
c. the one personality of Christ in which His two natures, human and
divine, are united.
3. Medicine/Medical .
a. the accumulation of blood or its solid components in parts of an
organ or body due to poor circulation.
b. such sedimentation, as in a test tube.
1580–90; < Late Latin < Greek hypóstasis that which settles at the bottom;
substance, nature, essence, equivalent to hypo- hypo- + stásis standing,

Not making any point here, I just found it interesting.

@Arella Mae,
I'm glad my New Testament (koine) Greek course finally proved useful.

You can read in Koine? That's going too far, Koine and Latin. I'm thoroughly disgusted now.

Hell, no.
I can painfully work my way through some words and phrases at best.
My last Greek course was in 1966.
