The Gospel According to St. John  CHAPTER -14

CHAPTER 1
4                                                                                                                                

14:1
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

14:2
In my Father�s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

14:3
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that
where I am, there ye may be also.

14:4
And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

14:5
Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

14:7
If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

14:8
Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

14:9
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

14:10
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

14:11
Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works� sake.

14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also;
and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

14:13
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14:14
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

14:15
If ye love me, keep my commandments.

14:16
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

14:17
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

14:18
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

14:19
Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

14:20
At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

14:21
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

14:22
Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and
not unto the world?

14:23
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

14:24
He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father�s which sent me.

14:25
These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

14:26
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

14:27
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

14:28
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me,
ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

14:29
And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

14:30
Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

14:31
But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me, commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
