  1. John 1:5 Or understood

10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?(A) The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority.(B) Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.(C) 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes(D) in me will do the works I have been doing,(E) and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask(F) in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

15 “If you love me, keep my commands.(G) 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate(H) to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth.(I) The world cannot accept him,(J) because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[a] in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans;(K) I will come to you.(L) 19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me.(M) Because I live, you also will live.(N) 20 On that day(O) you will realize that I am in my Father,(P) and you are in me, and I am in you.(Q) 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.(R) The one who loves me will be loved by my Father,(S) and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

22 Then Judas(T) (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”(U)

23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.(V) My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.(W) 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.(X)

25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate,(Y) the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name,(Z) will teach you all things(AA) and will remind you of everything I have said to you.(AB) 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.(AC) I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled(AD) and do not be afraid.

28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’(AE) If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father,(AF) for the Father is greater than I.(AG) 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.(AH) 30 I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world(AI) is coming. He has no hold over me,
