John 16:1-6 NCV

1 "I have told you these things to keep you from giving up.
2 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.
3 They will do this because they have not known the Father and they have not known me.
4 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.
5 Now I am going back to the One who sent me. But none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?'
6 Your hearts are filled with sadness because I have told you these things.
