22 Judas (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,and We will come to him and make Our home with him.24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; andthe word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
The Gift of His Peace
25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.26 Butthe[a]Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father willsend in My name,He will teach you all things, and bring to yourremembrance all things that I said to you.27 Peace 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 Mesay to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because[b]I said,‘I am going to the Father,’ forMy Father is greater than I.
29 “Andnow 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,for the ruler of this world is coming, and he hasnothing in Me.31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, andas the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from here.
The True Vine
15 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He[c]takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bearmore fruit.3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears muchfruit; for without Me you can donothing.6 If anyone does not abide in Me,he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.7 If you abide in Me, and My wordsabide in you,you[d]will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit;so you will be My disciples.
Love and Joy Perfected
9 “As the Fatherloved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
