Jesus Speaks of Conflict with the World and of the Paraclete (15:18-16:15)

Jesus' love for his disciples (15:1-17) is now contrasted with the world's hatred of Jesus and his disciples. Jesus has confronted his opponents repeatedly with the fact that their rejection of him reveals their alienation from God. Now Jesus says that their alienation will lead them to reject his disciples as well.
