These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.||
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that
whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.||
And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the
Father, nor me.||
But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may
remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at
the beginning, because I was with you.||
But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me,
Whither goest thou?||
(16:5) "None of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?"|
Did any of the apostles ask Jesus where he was going?
But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away:
for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart,
I will send him unto you.||
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of
righteousness, and of judgment:||
Of sin, because they believe not on me;||
Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;||
(16:11) "The prince of this world"|
Who is the Lord of the earth?
"I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now."
Did Jesus tell his disciples everything?
Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
I have yet many things
to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all
truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that
shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto
All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall
take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.||
A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye
shall see me, because I go to the Father.||
Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he
saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little
while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?||
They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot
tell what he saith.||
Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do
ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not
see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?||
Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the
world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be
turned into joy.||
A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but
as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the
anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.||
And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart
shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.||
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the
Father in my name, he will give it you.||
(16:23) "Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name,
he will give it you."|
O Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that
your joy may be full.
These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when
I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of
At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will
pray the Father for you:||
For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have
believed that I came out from God.||
I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave
the world, and go to the Father.||
His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest
Now are we sure that
thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee:
by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.||
(16:30) "Thou knowest all things."|
Did Jesus know everything?
Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered,
every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone,
because the Father is with me.||
(16:33) "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace."|
Is Jesus peaceful?
|16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome
