John 14:1–26

Jesus Comforts His Disciples

1 aDo not let your heart be troubled; 1believe in God, believe also in Me.

2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for aI go to prepare a place for you.

3 If I go and prepare a place for you, aI will come again and receive you to Myself, that bwhere I am, there you may be also.

4 And you know the way where I am going.”

5 aThomas * said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?”

6 Jesus * said to him, I am athe way, and bthe truth, and cthe life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Oneness with the Father

7 aIf you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you bknow Him, and have cseen Him.”

8 aPhilip * said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.”

9 Jesus * said to him, Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? aHe who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

10 Do you not believe that aI am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? bThe words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.

11 Believe Me that aI am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise bbelieve because of the works themselves.

12 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and agreater works than these he will do; because bI go to the Father.

13 aWhatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that bthe Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If you ask Me anything ain My name, I will do it.

15 aIf you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

Role of the Spirit

16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another 1aHelper, that He may be with you forever;

17 that is athe Spirit of truth, bwhom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

18 I will not leave you as orphans; aI will come to you.

19 1aAfter a little while bthe world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; cbecause I live, you will live also.

20 aIn that day you will know that bI am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.

21 aHe who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and bhe who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will cdisclose Myself to him.”

22 aJudas (not Iscariot) * said to Him, “Lord, what then has happened bthat You are going to disclose Yourself to us and not to the world?”

23 Jesus answered and said to him, aIf anyone loves Me, he will bkeep My word; and cMy Father will love him, and We dwill come to him and make Our abode with him.

24 He who does not love Me adoes not keep My words; and bthe word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.

25 These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you.

26 But the aHelper, the Holy Spirit, bwhom the Father will send in My name, cHe will teach you all things, and dbring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
