1 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 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. 5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7 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. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 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. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 16 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. 17 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? 18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith. 19 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? 20 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. 21 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. 22 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. 23 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. 24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. 25 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 the Father. 26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. 28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. 29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. 30 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. 31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? 32 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. 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 the world.

1 Deena E = "Disclaimer: "These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended."Jesus knew that the things he was talking about were not of this world, therefore probably sounded completely crazy and out of this world--but He gives the disciples a disclaimer. The disclaimer would be necessary and a source of strength to pull from later when the disciples share in Jesus' persecution."
2 Cary W = "Jesus laid the foundation and set the kingdom here in motion by first following not His own power, but totally relying upon the Holy Spirit that descended with John's baptism.  Now He is letting everyone know that He is going to the Father so that He can impart that same Holy Spirit to each who receive Him.The Holy Spirit within us continually challenges all the powers in this world to reprove of sin in those who still refuse Him, to witness to the righteousness of God at work with those who love Jesus and follow after the Spirit, and to demonstrate the victory over all principalities since their prince was kicked out and judged."
3 Cary W = "Through the Holy Spirit's indwelling presence in our hearts, we have access to all the Father has given His Son.  May we daily pray to hear and see what He gives to Holy Spirit to reveal to us."
4 Cary W = "He is saying that even after He ascends to heaven we will still be able to see Him.  The Holy Spirit continually waits to show us Jesus and all the Father gave Him."
5 Cary W = "The Lords prayer, Psalm 24 and many other of the Lord's example of how to pray are all good.  Here for the first time, Jesus is inviting us to use His Name and Identity in all that we desire as well as pray for.  Whatsoever ye ask, that your joy may be full.  Come before the Father in conversation and quest and petition as if you are coming as Christ. "
6 Cary W = "He is taking to us here as dear friends, brothers, family and equals.  He, as any elder brother, desires to share all of His understanding and purpose with us.  He is also telling us as we pray in His name, He will pray to the Father also on our behalf.  Amazing, that still in glory, He intercedes for each of us that love Him."
7 Cary W = "Even when we actually get a glimpse of understanding of God's ways, we still don't have much of a clue.  In a very short while His buddies are going to run, hide, deny they knew Him, with one betraying Him.  Yet in this moment of epiphany, Jesus doesn't encourage, He warns against the foolishness of us ordinary people.It would be best perhaps to just say, yea Lord, truth.  Then listen for the next thing He is saying.  Keep open to learn, get guidance, and seek for wisdom as a child, being okay with not knowing what is even going on."
8 Cary W = "We can so easily be troubled in this world of sorrows, yet He assures us not only do have His peace, which passes all understanding, but assures us His own victory over the world of sin and death is ours as well."
