Christ comforteth his disciples with the hope of heaven:
John 14:1 And he sayd vnto his disciples: Let not youre hertes be troubled. Beleve in god and beleve in me. John 14:2 In my fathers housse are many mansions. If it were not so I wolde have 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 receave you eve vnto my selfe yt where I am there maye ye be also. John 14:4 And whither I go ye knowe and ye waye ye knowe. John 14:5 Thomas sayde vnto him: Lorde we knowe not whyther thou goest. Also 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 sayd vnto him: I am ye waye ye truthe and ye life. And no man cometh vnto the father but by me. John 14:7 Yf ye had knowe me ye had knowe my father also. And now ye knowe him and have sene him. John 14:8 Philip sayd vnto him: Lorde shew vs the father and it suffiseth vs. John 14:9 Iesus sayde vnto him: have I bene so longe tyme wt you: and yet hast thou not knowen me? Philip he yt hath sene me hath sene ye father. And how sayest thou then: shew vs the father? John 14:10 Belevest thou not that I am in ye father and the father in me? The wordes that I speake vnto you I speakee not of my selfe: but ye father that dwelleth in me is he that doeth ye workes. John 14:11 Beleve me that I am the father and ye father in me. At the leest beleve me for the very workes sake. John 14:12 Verely verely I saye vnto you: he that beleveth on me the workes that I doo the same shall he do and greater workes then these shall he do because I go vnto my father.
assureth their prayers in his name to be effectual:
John 14:13 And what soever ye axe in my name yt will I do yt the father might be glorified by the sonne. John 14:14 Yf ye shall axe eny thige in my name I will do it
requesteth love and obedience:
John 14:15 If ye love me kepe my comaundementes
promiseth the Holy Ghost the Comforter,
John 14:16 and I will praye the father and he shall geve you a nother comforter yt he maye byde with you ever John 14:17 which is the sprete of truthe whome the worlde canot receave because the worlde seyth him not nether knoweth him. But ye knowe him. For he dwelleth with you and shalbe in you. John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortlesse: but will come vnto you. John 14:19 Yet a litell whyle and the worlde seith me no moare: but ye shall se me. For I live and ye shall live. 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 comaundemetes and kepeth them the same is he that loveth me. And he yt loveth me shall be loved of my father: and I will love him and will shewe myne awne selfe vnto him. John 14:22 Iudas sayde vnto him (not Iudas Iscarioth) Lorde what is the cause that thou wilt shewe thy selfe vnto vs and not vnto the worlde? John 14:23 Iesus answered and sayde vnto him: yf a man love me and wyll kepe my sayinges my father also will love him and we will come vnto him and will dwelle with him. John 14:24 He that loveth me not kepeth not my sayinges. And the wordes which ye heare are not myne but the fathers which sent me. John 14:25 This have I spoken vnto you beynge yet present with you. John 14:26 But that coforter which is the holy gost (whom my father will sende in my name) he shall teache you all thinges and bringe all thinges to youre remembraunce whatsoever I have tolde you.
and leaveth his peace with them.
John 14:27 Peace I leve with you my peace I geve vnto you. Not as the worlde geveth geve I vnto you. Let not youre hertes be greved nether feare ye. John 14:28 Ye have hearde how I sayde vnto you: I go and come agayne vnto you. If ye loved me ye wolde verely reioyce because I sayde I go vnto ye father. For ye father is greater then I John 14:29 And now have I shewed you before it come yt whe it is come to passe ye might beleve. John 14:30 Here after will I not talke many mordes vnto you. For the rular of this worlde commeth and hath nought in me. John 14:31 But that the worlde maye knowe that I love the father: therfore as the father gave me comaundment even so do I. Ryse let vs go hence.
