22 dJudas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?”
23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, eand We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and fthe word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But gthe 7Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will hsend in My name, iHe will teach you all things, and bring to your jremembrance all things that I said to you. 27 kPeace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 You have heard Me lsay to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because 8I said, m‘I am going to the Father,’ for nMy Father is greater than I.
29 “And onow I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe. 30 I will no longer talk much with you, pfor the ruler of this world is coming, and he has qnothing in Me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, and ras the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from here.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
