Christ comforteth his disciples with the hope of heaven:
John 14:1 And he sayde vnto his disciples: Let not youre hert be afrayed. Yf ye beleue on God, the beleue also on me. John 14:2 In my fathers house are many dwellinges. Yf it were not so, I wolde haue tolde you: I go to prepare the place for you. John 14:3 And though I go to prepare the place for you, yet wil I come agayne, and receaue you vnto myself, yt ye maye be where I am. John 14:4 And whither I go, ye knowe, and the waye knowe ye also. John 14:5 Thomas sayde vnto him: LORDE, we knowe not whither thou goest, & how can we knowe the waye?
professeth himself the way, the truth, and the life, and one with the Father:
John 14:6 Iesus sayde vnto him: I am the waye, and the trueth, and the life. Noman cometh to the father but by me. John 14:7 Yf ye knewe me, ye knewe my father also. And fro hece forth ye knowe hi, & haue sene him. John 14:8 Philippe sayde vnto him: LORDE, shewe vs the father, and it sufficeth vs. John 14:9 Iesus sayde vnto him: Thus longe am I with you, and hast thou not knowne me? Philippe, he that seyth me, seyth the father. And how sayest thou then: Shewe vs the father? John 14:10 Beleuest thou not that I am in the father, and that ye father is in me? The wordes that I speake vnto you, those speake not I of my self: but the father that dwelleth in me, he doth the workes. John 14:11 Beleue me, that I am in the father, and that ye father is in me: Or els, beleue me at the leest for the workes sake. John 14:12 Verely verely I saye vnto you: He that beleueth on me, shal do the workes that I do, and shal do greater then these: for I go to the father.
assureth their prayers in his name to be effectual:
John 14:13 And what soeuer ye axe ye father in my name, that wyl I do, that the father maye be praysed in the sonne. John 14:14 Yf ye axe eny thinge in my name, I wyl do it.
requesteth love and obedience:
John 14:15 Yf ye loue me, kepe my commaundementes.
promiseth the Holy Ghost the Comforter,
John 14:16 And I wyl praye the father, and he shal geue you another comforter, that he maye byde wt you for euer: John 14:17 euen ye sprete of trueth, whom ye worlde can not receaue, for it seyth him not, nether doth it knowe him: but ye knowe him, for he abydeth wt you, & shalbe in you John 14:18 I wil not leaue you cofortles, I come vnto you. John 14:19 It is yet a litle whyle, the shal the worlde se me nomore, but ye shal se me: for I lyue, and ye shal lyue also. John 14:20 In yt daye shal ye knowe, that I am in the father and ye in me, and I in you. John 14:21 He that hath my comaundementes, and kepeth them, the same is he that loueth me: and he that loueth me, shalbe loued of my father: & I wyl loue him, and wyl shewe myne awne self vnto him. John 14:22 Iudas sayde vnto hi: (not that Iscarioth) LORDE, What is the cause the, that thou wilt shewe thy self vnto vs, and not vnto the worlde? John 14:23 Iesus answered, and sayde vnto him: He that loueth me, wyl kepe my worde, and my father wyl loue him: and we wyl come vnto him, and wyll make oure dwellynge with him. John 14:24 But he that loueth me not, kepeth not my sayenges. And the worde that ye heare, is not myne, but the fathers which hath sent me. John 14:25 This haue I spoken vnto you, whyle I was with you. John 14:26 But that comforter euen ye holy goost, who my father shal sende in my name, he shal teache you all thinges, & bringe all to youre remembraunce, what soeuer I haue tolde you.
and leaveth his peace with them.
John 14:27 Peace I leaue vnto you, my peace I geue you: I geue not vnto you, as the worlde geueth. Let not yor hert be troubled, nether let it be afrayed. John 14:28 Ye haue herde, that I sayde vnto you: I go, & come agayne vnto you. Yf ye loued me, ye wolde reioyse, because I saide, I go to the father: for ye father is greater the I. John 14:29 And now haue I tolde you, before it come, that whan it is come to passe, ye maye beleue: John 14:30 Here after wyl not I talke moch with you. For the prynce of this worlde cometh, and hath nothinge in me. John 14:31 But that the worlde maye knowe that I loue ye father. And as the father hath comaunded me, so do I. Aryse, let vs go hence.
