Christ comforteth his disciples with the hope of heaven:
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe on God, believe also on me. John 14:2 In my Father's house there are many abodes; were it not so, I had told you: for I go to prepare you a place; John 14:3 and if I go and shall prepare you a place, I am coming again and shall receive you to myself, that where I am ye also may be. John 14:4 And ye know where I go, and ye know the way. John 14:5 Thomas says to him, Lord, we know not where 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 Jesus says to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father unless by me. John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye would have known also my Father, and henceforth ye know him and have seen him. John 14:8 Philip says to him, Lord, shew us the Father and it suffices us. John 14:9 Jesus says to him, Am I so long a time with you, and thou hast not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the Father; and how sayest thou, Shew us the Father? John 14:10 Believest thou not that I [am] in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words which I speak to you I do not speak from myself; but the Father who abides in me, he does the works. John 14:11 Believe *me* that I [am] in the Father and the Father in me; but if not, believe me for the works' sake themselves. John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say to you, He that believes on me, the works which I do shall he do also, and he shall do greater than these, because I go to the Father.
assureth their prayers in his name to be effectual:
John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, this will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:14 If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
requesteth love and obedience:
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
promiseth the Holy Ghost the Comforter,
John 14:16 And I will beg the Father, and he will give you another Comforter, that he may be with you for ever, John 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see him nor know him; but ye know him, for he abides with you, and shall be in you. John 14:18 I will not leave you orphans, I am coming to you. John 14:19 Yet a little and the world sees me no longer; but ye see me; because I live ye also shall live. John 14:20 In that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. John 14:21 He that has my commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me; but he that loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will manifest myself to him. John 14:22 Judas, not the Iscariote, says to him, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself to us and not to the world? John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our abode with him. John 14:24 He that loves me not does not keep my words; and the word which ye hear is not mine, but [that] of the Father who has sent me. John 14:25 These things I have said to you, abiding with you; John 14:26 but the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, *he* shall teach you all things, and will bring to your remembrance all the things which I have said to you.
and leaveth his peace with them.
John 14:27 I leave peace with you; I give *my* peace to you: not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it fear. John 14:28 Ye have heard that I have said unto you, I go away and I am coming to you. If ye loved me ye would rejoice that I go to the Father, for [my] Father is greater than I. John 14:29 And now I have told you before it comes to pass, that when it shall have come to pass ye may believe. John 14:30 I will no longer speak much with you, for the ruler of the world comes, and in me he has nothing; John 14:31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father has commanded me, thus I do. Rise up, let us go hence.
