Jesus’ Victory Over the World

25 "I have said these [things] to you in figurative sayings. An hour is coming when I will speak to you in figurative sayings no longer, but I will tell you plainly about the Father. 26 On that day you will ask in my name, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father on your behalf. 27 For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. 28 I have gone out from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and am going to the Father." 29 His disciples said, "Behold, now you are speaking {plainly}a and are telling [us]b no figurative saying! 30 Now we know that you know everything and do not {need for}c anyone to ask you [questions].d By this we believe that you have come from God." 31 Jesus replied to them, "Now do you believe? 32 Behold, an hour is coming--and has come--that you will be scattered each one to his own [home],e and you will leave me alone. And I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 I have said these [things] to you so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have affliction, but have courage! I have conquered the world."
