    Do they refer to same aspect of the HS work in us?

    What exactly is/does His illuminating do for us regarding understanding the Bible?

    I'm assuming you're talking about I John 2:20 and I John 2:27

    To me, it appears that John is drawing a connection between the anointing of the Holy Spirit and the knowing the truth.

    Luke also draws a similar connection in Acts 16:15, regarding Lydia:
    This same John recorded Jesus' words in John 16:13
