The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – God's Plan Established on Christ (16:13-20)
God's Plan Established on Christ (16:13-20)

The religious elite repudiated Jesus (vv. 1-4); the disciples lacked sufficient faith in him to understand his most basic warnings (vv. 5-12). But now, informed by Jesus' works (14:33) and perhaps by a new understanding of Jesus' role vis-a-vis that of their people's religious establishment (16:1-12), the disciples are on the verge of a new level of revelation. Even at this point, however, they do not fully understand their Master's mission (vv. 21-28).
