John 14

Jesus Comforts His Disciples

1 "1Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.
2 "In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for 2I go to prepare a place for you.
3 "If I go and prepare a place for you, 3I will come again and receive you to Myself, that 4where I am, there you may be also.
4 "And you know the way where I am going."
5 5Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?"
6 Jesus said to him, "I am 6the way, and 7the truth, and 8the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Oneness with the Father

7 "9If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you 10know Him, and have 11seen Him."
8 12Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us."
9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long * with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? 13He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father '?
10 "Do you not believe that 14I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? 15The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.
11 "Believe Me that 16I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise 17believe because of the works themselves.
12 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and 18greater works than these he will do; because 19I go to the Father.
13 "20Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that 21the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 "If you ask Me anything 22in My name, I will do it.
15 "23If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

Role of the Spirit

16 "I will ask the Father, and He will give you another 24Helper, that He may be with you forever;
17 that is 25the Spirit of truth, 26whom the world cannot * receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
18 "I will not leave you as orphans; 27I will come to you.
19 "28After a little while 29the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; 30because I live, you will live also.
20 "31In that day you will know that 32I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
21 "33He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and 34he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will 35disclose Myself to him."
22 36Judas (not Iscariot ) said to Him, "Lord, what then has happened 37that You are going to disclose Yourself to us and not to the world?"
23 Jesus answered and said to him, "38If anyone loves Me, he will 39keep My word; and 40My Father will love him, and We 41will come to him and make Our abode with him.
24 "He who does not love Me 42does not keep My words; and 43the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.
25 "These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you.
26 "But the 44Helper, the Holy Spirit, 45whom the Father will send in My name, 46He will teach you all things, and 47bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
27 "48Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. 49Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
28 "50You heard that I said to you, 'I go away, and 51I will come to you.' If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced because 52I go to the Father, for 53the Father is greater than I.
29 "Now 54I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens, you may believe.
30 "I will not speak much more with you, for 55the ruler of the world is coming, and he has nothing * in Me;
31 but so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do exactly as 56the Father commanded Me. Get up, 57let us go from here.
