"I have told you these things to keep you from giving up.
People will put you out of their synagogues. Yes, the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are offering service to God.
They will do this because they have not known the Father and they have not known me.
I have told you these things now so that when the time comes you will remember that I warned you. "I did not tell you these things at the beginning, because I was with you then.
Now I am going back to the One who sent me. But none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?'
Your hearts are filled with sadness because I have told you these things.
