Gospel of John Chapter Fourteen

14:1 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled; trust in God, and trust also in me.
14:2 My LORD’s dwelling place has many regions – if there weren’t I would have told you, because I depart to prepare you for that place.
14:3 And if I depart and prepare you for that place, I will stay with you and guide you myself so that you may be there with me.
14:4 And you will know the path to where I am going.”
14:5 Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going – how will we know the path?”
14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the path, the truth and the life: None of you1 will come before the Creator except through me.
14:7 If you knew me, you would know my LORD also; henceforth you will know Him and will perceive Him.”
14:8 Philip said to him, “Master, show us the Creator, and that is sufficient for us.”
14:9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long and still you haven’t come to know me Philip? One who perceives me has perceived the Creator. How can you then say, ‘Show us the Creator?’
14:10 Do you not trust that I am with the Creator and the Creator is with me? The words I speak to you are not spoken from my authority: Rather, the Creator abiding with me is doing His work.
14:11 Trust me that I am with the Creator and the Creator is with me; at least trust the works in themselves.
14:12 Very truly I say to you, he who trusts in me – the works I do, he will also do – and greater works than these will he do, because I am departing to go to the Creator.
14:13 Whatever you request in my name, that I will do, so that the Creator will be glorified by His Representative.
14:14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
14:15 If you love me you will follow my instructions.
14:16 And I will ask the Creator and He will give you another Counselor, so He may be with you eternally.
14:17 This is the Spirit of Truth – whom the world cannot receive because it does not perceive Him or know Him – but you know Him because He will remain by your side and be with you.
14:18 I won’t leave you bereaved – I will come to you.
14:19 Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me because I live and you also will live.
14:20 At that time you will know that I am with my LORD and you with me, and I with you.
14:21 He who keeps my instructions and follows them is the one who loves me. And one who loves me will be loved by my LORD and I will love him and will reveal myself to him.
14:22 Judas – not Iscariot – said to him, “Master, what has taken place to cause you to reveal yourself to us and not to the world?”
14:23 Jesus answered, and said to him, “Someone who loves me will follow my teachings, and my LORD will love him and we will come to him and remain with him.
14:24 One who doesn’t love me does not follow my teachings. And these teachings you hear are not from me but from the Creator who sent me.
14:25 These things I have spoken to you while I remain with you.
14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit – whom the Creator will send in my name – He will teach you everything and remind you of everything I said to you.
14:27 I leave you with peace – my peace I give to you: Not as the material world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor be in fear.
14:28 You heard that I said to you, ‘I depart yet I will be with you.’ If you love me you will rejoice because I depart for the Creator, for the Creator is greater than me.
14:29 I tell you now before it takes place so that when it happens, you will have faith.
14:30 I won’t speak too much more with you because the prince of this world is coming and he has nothing to do with me.
14:31 But so that the world may know that I love the Creator, I do exactly what the Creator instructs me. Let’s get up and leave this place.”

1. Verse 14:6. The phrase "of you" is indicated as Jesus is addressing his specific audience. Jesus speaks directly to and about his disciples, and is directly responding to Thomas’ question in the prior verse.
