Difference between soul and spirit?

What is the difference between soul and spirit?

While there are some who believe that human beings consist of three distinct parts—body, soul and spirit—the Bible most often describes people as consisting of two parts:  body and soul/spirit.  The Bible most often uses “soul” and “spirit” interchangeably.

Overall, the Bible uses “soul” in relationship to the body, while it uses “spirit” in a person’s relationship to God.
