Christ comforteth his disciples with the hope of heaven:
John 14:1 And he sayd vnto hys disciples: Let not youre hertes be troubled. Beleue in God & beleue in me. John 14:2 In my fathers house are manye mansyons. Yf it were not so, I wolde haue told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:3 And yf I go to prepare a place for you, I wyl come agayne, and receyue you euen vnto my self, that wher I am, there may ye be also. John 14:4 And whyther I go, ye knowe, and the waye ye knowe. John 14:5 Thomas sayde vnto him: Lorde we know not whether thou goest Also how is it possyble for vs to knowe the waye?
professeth himself the way, the truth, and the life, and one with the Father:
John 14:6 Iesus sayd vnto hym: I am the waye, the truthe and þe lyfe. And no man commeth to the father, but by me. John 14:7 Yf ye had knowen me, ye had knowen my father also. And nowe ye knowe hym, & haue sene hym. John 14:8 Philip sayde vnto hym: Lorde shewe vs the father, and it suffyseth vs. John 14:9 Iesus sayd vnto hym. Haue I bene so longe tyme with you, and yet haste thou not knowen me? Philip, he that hath sene me, hath sene the father. And how sayest thou then: shew vs the father? John 14:10 Beleuest thou not þt I am in the father & þe father in me? The wordes that I speake vnto you. I speake not of my selfe: but the father þt dwelleth in me, is he that doeth the workes. John 14:11 Beleue ye not þt I am in the father, and the father in me? At the least beleue me for the very workes sake. John 14:12 Verely, verely I saye vnto you, he that beleueth on me, the workes that I do, the same shal he do, and greater workes then these shal he do, because I go vnto my father.
assureth their prayers in his name to be effectual:
John 14:13 And whatsoeuer ye axe in my name that will I do þt þe father myght be glorifyed by the sonne. John 14:14 Yf ye shall axe any thyng 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 & I will praye the father, and he shal geue you another conforter, that he may byde with you euer John 14:17 which is the spirite of truth whom the worlde can not receyue, because the world seeth hym not, neyther knoweth hym. But ye knowe hym. For he dwelleth with you, & shal be in you. John 14:18 I wyll not leaue you comfortlesse, but wyll come vnto you. John 14:19 Yet a lytel whyle and the worlde seeth me no more: but ye shal se me. For I lyue, and 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 hathe my commaundementes and kepeth them, the same is he that loueth me. And he that loueth me, shal be loued of my father: And I will loue hym, and will shewe myne owne selfe to him. John 14:22 Iudas sayd vnto hym (not Iudas Iscarioth) Lord what is the cause that thou wilte shewe thy selfe vnto vs, & not vnto the worlde? John 14:23 Iesus aunswered and sayd vnto hym, yf a man loue me, and will kepe my saiynges, my father also will loue hym & we will come vnto hym, and will dwell to hym. John 14:24 He that loueth me not, kepeth not my saiynges. And the wordes whiche ye heare, are not myne, but the fathers which sent me. John 14:25 Thys haue I spoken vnto you, beynge yet present with you. John 14:26 But that comforter whiche is the holy ghost (whome my father wil send in my name) he shal teache you all thinges, & brynge all thynges to youre remembraunce whatsoeuer I haue tolde 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 hertes be greued, neyther feare ye. John 14:28 Ye haue hearde how I sayde vnto you. I go and come agayne vnto you. Yf ye loued me, ye would verely 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, þt when it is come to passe, ye myght beleue. John 14:30 Here after will I not talke manye wordes vnto you. For the ruler of thys world cometh and hath noughte in me. John 14:31 But that the worlde maye knowe that I loue the father: therfore as the father gaue me commaundement euen so do I. Ryse, let vs go hence.
