14 “Letnot your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.2 In My Father’s house are many[a]mansions; if it were not so,[b]I would have told you.I go to prepare a place for you.3 And if I go and prepare a place for you,I will come again and receive you to Myself; thatwhere I am, there you may be also.4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
6 Jesus said to him, “I amthe way,the truth, andthe life.No one comes to the Fatherexcept through Me.
The Father Revealed
7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”
9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip?He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?10 Do you not believe thatI am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to youI do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me,or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.
The Answered Prayer
12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may beglorified in the Son.14 If you[c]ask anything in My name, I will do it.
Jesus Promises Another Helper
15 “If you love Me,[d]keep My commandments.16 And I will pray the Father, andHe will give you another[e]Helper, that He may abide with you forever—17 the Spirit of truth,whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with youand will be in you.
