Teaching on the Holy Spirit

14:15 “If you love me, you will obey34 my commandments.35 14:16 Then36 I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate37 to be with you forever—14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept,38 because it does not see him or know him. But you know him, because he resides39 with you and will be40 in you.

14:18 “I will not abandon41 you as orphans,42 I will come to you.43 14:19 In a little while44 the world will not see me any longer, but you will see me; because I live, you will live too. 14:20 You will know at that time45 that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you. 14:21 The person who has my commandments and obeys46 them is the one who loves me.47 The one48 who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will reveal49 myself to him.”

14:22 “Lord,” Judas (not Judas Iscariot)50 said,51 “what has happened that you are going to reveal52 yourself to us and not to the world?14:23 Jesus replied,53 “If anyone loves me, he will obey54 my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and take up residence with him.55 14:24 The person who does not love me does not obey56 my words. And the word57 you hear is not mine, but the Father’s who sent me.

14:25 “I have spoken these things while staying58 with you. 14:26 But the Advocate,59 the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you60 everything,61 and will cause you to remember everything62 I said to you.

14:27 “Peace I leave with you;63 my peace I give to you; I do not give it64 to you as the world does.65 Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage.66 14:28 You heard me say to you,67 ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad68 that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am.69 14:29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe.70 14:30 I will not speak with you much longer,71 for the ruler of this world is coming.72 He has no power over me,73 14:31 but I am doing just what the Father commanded me, so that the world may know74 that I love the Father.75 Get up, let us go from here.”76
