Christ comforteth his disciples with the hope of heaven:
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: yee beleeue in God, beleeue also in me. John 14:2 In my Fathers house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would haue told you: I goe to prepare a place for you. John 14:3 And if I goe and prepare a place for you, I will come againe, and receiue you vnto my selfe, that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:4 And whither I goe yee know, and the way ye know. John 14:5 Thomas saith vnto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest: and how can we know the way?
professeth himself the way, the truth, and the life, and one with the Father:
John 14:6 Iesus saith vnto him, I am the Way, the Trueth, and the Life: no man commeth vnto the Father but by mee. John 14:7 If ye had knowen me, ye should haue knowen my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and haue seene him. John 14:8 Philip sayth vnto him, Lord, shew vs the Father, and it sufficeth vs. John 14:9 Iesus saith vnto him, Haue I bin so long time with you, and yet hast thou not knowen me, Philip? he that hath seene me, hath seene the father, and how sayest thou then, Shew vs the father? John 14:10 Beleeuest thou not that I am in the father, and the father in mee? The words that I speake vnto you, I speak not of my selfe: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doth the works. John 14:11 Beleeue me that I am in the Father, and the Father in mee: or else beleeue me for the very workes sake. John 14:12 Uerely, verely I say vnto you, he that beleeueth on me, the works that I doe, shall hee doe also, and greater workes then these shall he doe, because I goe vnto my Father.
assureth their prayers in his name to be effectual:
John 14:13 And whatsoeuer ye shall aske in my Name, that will I doe, that the Father may be glorified in the Sonne. John 14:14 If ye shall aske any thing in my Name, I will doe it.
requesteth love and obedience:
John 14:15 If ye loue me, keepe my commandements.
promiseth the Holy Ghost the Comforter,
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and hee shall giue you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for euer, John 14:17 [Euen] the Spirit of trueth, whom the world cannot receiue, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him, for hee dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. John 14:18 I wil not leaue you comfortlesse, I will come to you. John 14:19 Yet a litle while, and the world seeth me no more: but ye see me, because I liue, ye shall liue also. John 14:20 At that day ye shall know, that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. John 14:21 He that hath my commandements, and keepeth them, hee it is that loueth me: and he that loueth me shall be loued of my Father, and I will loue him, and will manifest my selfe to him. John 14:22 Iudas saith vnto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thy selfe vnto vs, and not vnto the world? John 14:23 Iesus answered, and saide vnto him, If a man loue mee, he will keepe my wordes: and my Father will loue him, and wee will come vnto him, and make our abode with him. John 14:24 He that loueth mee not, keepeth not my sayings, and the word which you heare, is not mine, but the Fathers which sent mee. John 14:25 These things haue I spoken vnto you, being yet present with you. John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the holy Ghost, whom the Father wil send in my name, he shal teach you al things, & bring al things to your remembrance, whatsoeuer I haue said vnto you.
and leaveth his peace with them.
John 14:27 Peace I leaue with you, my peace I giue vnto you, not as the world giueth, giue I vnto you: let not your heart bee troubled, neither let it bee afraid. John 14:28 Ye haue heard how I saide vnto you, I goe away, and come againe vnto you. If ye loued mee, yee would reioyce, because I said, I go vnto the Father: for my Father is greater then I. John 14:29 And now I haue told you before it come to passe, that when it is come to passe, ye might beleeue. John 14:30 Heereafter I will not talke much with you: for the prince of this world commeth, and hath nothing in me. John 14:31 But that the world may know that I loue the Father: and as the Father gaue me commandement, euen so I doe: Arise, let vs goe hence.
