Christ comforteth his disciples with the hope of heaven:
John 14:1 'Let not your heart be troubled, believe in God, also in me believe; John 14:2 in the house of my Father are many mansions; and if not, I would have told you; I go on to prepare a place for you; John 14:3 and if I go on and prepare for you a place, again do I come, and will receive you unto myself, that where I am ye also may be; John 14:4 and whither I go away ye have known, and the way ye have known.' John 14:5 Thomas saith to him, 'Sir, we have not known whither thou goest away, and how are we able to know the way?'
professeth himself the way, the truth, and the life, and one with the Father:
John 14:6 Jesus saith to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one doth come unto the Father, if not through me; John 14:7 if ye had known me, my Father also ye would have known, and from this time ye have known Him, and have seen Him.' John 14:8 Philip saith to him, 'Sir, shew to us the Father, and it is enough for us;' John 14:9 Jesus saith to him, 'So long time am I with you, and thou hast not known me, Philip? he who hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how dost thou say, Shew to us the Father? John 14:10 Believest thou not that I [am] in the Father, and the Father is in me? the sayings that I speak to you, from myself I speak not, and the Father who is abiding in me, Himself doth the works; John 14:11 believe me, that I [am] in the Father, and the Father in me; and if not, because of the works themselves, believe me. John 14:12 'Verily, verily, I say to you, he who is believing in me, the works that I dothat one also shall do, and greater than these he shall do, because I go on to my Father;
assureth their prayers in his name to be effectual:
John 14:13 and whatever ye may ask in my name, I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; John 14:14 if ye ask anything in my name I will do [it].
requesteth love and obedience:
John 14:15 'If ye love me, my commands keep,
promiseth the Holy Ghost the Comforter,
John 14:16 and I will ask the Father, and another Comforter He will give to you, that he may remain with youto the age; John 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world is not able to receive, because it doth not behold him, nor know him, and ye know him, because he doth remain with you, and shall be in you. John 14:18 'I will not leave you bereaved, I come unto you; John 14:19 yet a little, and the world doth no more behold me, and ye behold me, because I live, and ye 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 who is having my commands, and is keeping them, that one it is who is loving me, and he who is loving me shall be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.' John 14:22 Judas saith to him, (not the Iscariot), 'Sir, what hath come to pass, that to us thou are about to manifest thyself, and not to the world?' John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, 'If any one may love me, my word he will keep, and my Father will love him, and unto him we will come, and abode with him we will make; John 14:24 he who is not loving me, my words doth not keep; and the word that ye hear is not mine, but the Father's who sent me. John 14:25 'These things I have spoken to you, remaining with you, John 14:26 and the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and remind you of all things that I said to you.
and leaveth his peace with them.
John 14:27 'Peace I leave to you; my peace I give to you, not according as the world doth give do I give to you; let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid; John 14:28 ye heard that I said to youI go away, and I come unto you; if ye did love me, ye would have rejoiced that I saidI go on to the Father, because my Father is greater than I. John 14:29 'And now I have said [it] to you before it come to pass, that when it may come to pass, ye may believe; John 14:30 I will no more talk much with you, for the ruler of this world doth come, and in me he hath nothing; John 14:31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and according as the Father gave me command so I do; arise, we may go hence.
