Christ comforteth his disciples with the hope of heaven:
John 14:1 And he sayde vnto his disciples: lett not your herte be troubled. Ye beleue in God, beleue also in me. John 14:2 In my fathers house are many mansions: If it were not so, I wolde 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 will come agayne, and receaue you euen vnto my selfe: that wher I am, ther maye ye be also. John 14:4 And whyther I go, ye knowe, and the waye ye knowe. John 14:5 Thomas sayth vnto him: Lord, we knowe not whither thou goest. And how 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 sayeth vnto hym: I am the waye and the treuth, 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 now ye knowe him, and haue sene hym. John 14:8 Philip sayth vnto hym: Lorde, shewe vs the father, & it suffiseth vs. John 14:9 Iesus sayth vnto hym: haue I bene so longe tyme with you, & yet hast thou not knowen me? Philip, he that hath sene me, hath sene my father. And howe sayest thou then: shewe vs the father? John 14:10 Beleuest þu not, þt I am in the father, & the father in me? The wordes þt I speake vnto you, I speake not of my self: but the father that dwelleth in me is he þt doth the workes. John 14:11 Beleue me þt I am in the father, & the father in me. Or els beleue me for the worckes sake. John 14:12 Uerely verely, I saye vnto you: he þt beleueth on me, the worckes that I do, the same shal he do also, & greater worckes then these shall he do, because I go vnto my father.
assureth their prayers in his name to be effectual:
John 14:13 And whatsoeuer ye aske in my name, that will I do, þt the father maye be glorifyed by the sonne. John 14:14 If ye shall aske any thynge in my name. I will 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 & I will praye þe father, and he shall geue you another comforter, that he maye bide wt you for euer: John 14:17 euen the sprete of treuth, whom the world cannot receaue, because the worlde seeth hym not, nether knoweth him. But ye knowe him. For he dwelleth wt you, & shalbe in you. John 14:18 I wyll not leaue you comforteles: but will come to you: John 14:19 Yet a lytell while and the world seeth me nomore: but ye se me. For I lyue, & ye shall lyue. John 14:20 That daye shall ye knowe that I am in my father, and you in me, and I in you. John 14:21 He that hath my commaundementes, and kepeth them: the same is he þt loueth me. And he that loueth me, shalbe loued of my father: and I wyll loue hym, and wyll shewe myne awne selfe to him. John 14:22 Iudas sayth vnto hym: (not Iudas Iscarioth) Lorde, what is done that thou wylt shewe thy selfe vnto vs, and not vnto the world? John 14:23 Iesus answered & sayd: vnto them: yf a man loue me, he will kepe my sayinges, and my father wyll loue hym, and we wyll come vnto hym, and dwell wt hym. John 14:24 He that loueth me not, kepeth not my sayinges. And the worde which ye heare, is not myne, but the fathers which sent me. John 14:25 These thinges haue I spoken ynto you, being yet present with you. John 14:26 But the comforter which is the holy ghost whom my father wil sende in my name, he shal teach you all thinges, & bryng all thinges to your remembraunce whatsoeuer I haue sayd 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 world geueth, geue I vnto you. Let not youre hertes be greued, nether feare. John 14:28 Ye haue hearde howe I sayde vnto you: I go, and come agayne vnto you. If ye loued me, ye wolde verely reioyse, because I sayd: 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 Here after wyll I not talke many wordes vnto you. For the prince of this worlde commeth, and hath naught in me. John 14:31 But þt þe worlde maye knowe that I loue the father. And as the father gaue me commaundment, euen so do I. Ryse, let vs go hence.
