Christ comforteth his disciples with the hope of heaven:
John 14:1 And he sayde vnto his disciples, Let not your hearte be troubled: Ye beleue in god, beleue also in me. John 14:2 In my fathers house, are many dwellyng places: If it were not so, I woulde haue tolde you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:3 And yf I go to prepare a place for you, I wyll come agayne, and receaue you, [euen] vnto my selfe: that where I am, there may ye be also. John 14:4 And whither I go, ye knowe, and the way ye knowe. John 14:5 Thomas sayth vnto hym: Lorde, we knowe not whither thou goest: And howe is it possible for vs to knowe the waye?
professeth himself the way, the truth, and the life, and one with the Father:
John 14:6 Iesus sayth vnto hym: I am the way, and the trueth, and the lyfe. No man cometh vnto the father, but by me. John 14:7 If ye had knowen me, ye had knowen my father also. And nowe ye knowe hym, and haue seene hym. John 14:8 Philip sayth vnto hym: Lorde, shewe vs the father, and it suffiseth vs. John 14:9 Iesus sayth vnto hym: Haue I ben so long tyme with you, & yet hast thou not knowen me? Philip, he that hath seene me, hath seene the father. And howe sayest thou then, shewe vs the father? John 14:10 Beleuest thou not, that I am in the father, & the father in me? The wordes that I speake vnto you, I speake not of my selfe: but the father that dwelleth in me, is he that doth the workes. John 14:11 Beleue me, that I am in the father, and the father in me: Or els beleue me for the workes sake. John 14:12 Ueryly, veryly I say vnto you, he that beleueth on me, the workes that I do, the same shal he do also, and greater workes then these shall he do, because I go vnto the father.
assureth their prayers in his name to be effectual:
John 14:13 And whatsoeuer ye aske in my name, that wyll I do, that the father may be glorified in the sonne. John 14:14 If ye shall aske any thing in my name, I wyll do it.
requesteth love and obedience:
John 14:15 If ye loue me, kepe my commaundementes,
promiseth the Holy Ghost the Comforter,
John 14:16 And I wyll pray the father, and he shall geue you another comforter, that he may byde with you for euer: John 14:17 Euen the spirite of trueth, whom the worlde can not receaue, because the worlde seeth hym not, neither knoweth hym. But ye knowe hym: For he dwelleth with you, and shalbe in you. John 14:18 I wyll not leaue you comfortlesse, but wyll come to you. John 14:19 Yet a litle whyle, and the worlde shall see me no more: but ye shall see me, because I lyue, and ye shall lyue [also.] John 14:20 That day shall ye knowe, that I am in my father, and you in me, & I in you. John 14:21 He that hath my commaundementes, and kepeth them, the same is he that loueth me: And he that loueth me, shalbe loued of my father, and I wyll loue him, and wyll shew myne owne selfe to hym. John 14:22 Iudas sayth vnto hym, not [Iudas] Iscariot: Lorde, what is done, that thou wylt shewe thy selfe vnto vs, and not vnto the worlde? John 14:23 Iesus aunswered, & sayde vnto hym: If a man loue me, he wyll kepe my sayinges: and my father wyll loue hym, and we wyll come vnto hym, and dwell with hym. John 14:24 He that loueth me not, kepeth not my sayinges: And the word which ye heare, is not myne, but the fathers which sent me. John 14:25 These thynges haue I spoken vnto you, beyng yet present with you. John 14:26 But the comforter, [which is] the holy ghost, whom the father wyll sende in my name, he shal teach you all thinges, & bryng all thynges to your remebraunce whatsoeuer I haue sayde vnto you.
and leaveth his peace with them.
John 14:27 Peace I leaue with you, my peace I geue vnto you: Not as the worlde geueth, geue I vnto you. Let not your heartes be greeued, neither feare. John 14:28 Ye haue hearde howe I sayde vnto you, I go away, and come agayne vnto you. Yf ye loued me, ye woulde veryly reioyce, because I sayde, I go vnto the father: for the father is greater then I. John 14:29 And nowe haue I shewed you before it come, that when it is come to passe, ye myght beleue. John 14:30 Hereafter wyll I not talke many wordes vnto you: For the prince of this worlde cometh, and hath nought in me. John 14:31 But that the worlde may knowe that I loue the father: And as the father gaue me commaundement, euen so do I. Ryse, let vs go hence.
