John 15:18-27

ESV 18 "If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. MSG 18 "If you find the godless world is hating you, remember it got its start hating me. ESV 19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. MSG 19 If you lived on the world's terms, the world would love you as one of its own. But since I picked you to live on God's terms and no longer on the world's terms, the world is going to hate you. ESV 20 Remember the word that I said to you: 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. MSG 20 "When that happens, remember this: Servants don't get better treatment than their masters. If they beat on me, they will certainly beat on you. If they did what I told them, they will do what you tell them. ESV 21 But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. MSG 21 "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. ESV 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. MSG 22 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. ESV 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father also. MSG 23 Hate me, hate my Father - it's all the same. ESV 24 If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have seen and hated both me and my Father. MSG 24 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. ESV 25 But the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled: 'They hated me without a cause.' MSG 25 Interesting - they have verified the truth of their own Scriptures where it is written, 'They hated me for no good reason.' ESV 26 "But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. MSG 26 "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. ESV 27 And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning. MSG 27 You, too, from your side must give your confirming evidence, since you are in this with me from the start.

John 16:1-15

ESV 1 "I have said all these things to you to keep you from falling away. MSG 1 "I've told you these things to prepare you for rough times ahead. ESV 2 They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. MSG 2 They are going to throw you out of the meeting places. There will even come a time when anyone who kills you will think he's doing God a favor. ESV 3 And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me. MSG 3 They will do these things because they never really understood the Father. ESV 4 But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you. "I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you. MSG 4 I've told you these things so that when the time comes and they start in on you, you'll be well-warned and ready for them. ESV 5 But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?' MSG 5 But now I am on my way to the One who sent me. Not one of you has asked, 'Where are you going?' ESV 6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. MSG 6 Instead, the longer I've talked, the sadder you've become. ESV 7 Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. MSG 7 So let me say it again, this truth: It's better for you that I leave. If I don't leave, the Friend won't come. But if I go, I'll send him to you. ESV 8 And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: MSG 8 "When he comes, he'll expose the error of the godless world's view of sin, righteousness, and judgment: ESV 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; MSG 9 He'll show them that their refusal to believe in me is their basic sin; ESV 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; MSG 10 that righteousness comes from above, where I am with the Father, out of their sight and control; ESV 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. MSG 11 that judgment takes place as the ruler of this godless world is brought to trial and convicted. ESV 12 "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. MSG 12 "I still have many things to tell you, but you can't handle them now. ESV 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. MSG 13 But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is. He won't draw attention to himself, but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said. ESV 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. MSG 14 He will honor me; he will take from me and deliver it to you. ESV 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. MSG 15 Everything the Father has is also mine. That is why I've said, 'He takes from me and delivers to you.'
