"They are going to do all these things to you because of the way they treated me, because they don't know the One who sent me.
If I hadn't come and told them all this in plain language, it wouldn't be so bad. As it is, they have no excuse.
Hate me, hate my Father - it's all the same.
If I hadn't done what I have done among them, works no one has ever done, they wouldn't be to blame. But they saw the God-signs and hated anyway, both me and my Father.
Interesting - they have verified the truth of their own Scriptures where it is written, 'They hated me for no good reason.'
"When the Friend I plan to send you from the Father comes - the Spirit of Truth issuing from the Father - he will confirm everything about me.
You, too, from your side must give your confirming evidence, since you are in this with me from the start.
