15“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16I will ask the Father, and he will send another Companion,a who will be with you forever. 17This Companion is the Spirit of Truth, whom the world can't receive because it neither sees him nor recognizes him. You know him, because he lives with you and will be with you. 18
"I won't leave you as orphans. I will come to you.19Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Because I live, you will live too.20On that day you will know that I am in my Father, you are in me, and I am in you.21Whoever has my commandments and keeps them loves me. Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them."
Judas (not Judas Iscariot) asked, "Lord, why are you about to reveal yourself to us and not to the world?"
Jesus answered, “Whoever loves me will keep my word. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24Whoever doesn't love me doesn't keep my words. The word that you hear isn't mine. It is the word of the Father who sent me. 25“I have spoken these things to you while I am with you. 26The Companion,b the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I told you. 27“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you. I give to you not as the world gives. Don't be troubled or afraid. 28You have heard me tell you, ‘I'm going away and returning to you.' If you loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than me. 29I have told you before it happens so that when it happens you will believe. 30I won't say much more to you because this world's ruler is coming. He has nothing on me.
