Bible: John 14:1-11

Jesus’ Parting Words to His Disciples

14:1Do not let your hearts be distressed. 1  You believe in God; 2  believe also in me. 14:2 There are many dwelling places 3  in my Father’s house. 4  Otherwise, I would have told you, because 5  I am going away to make ready 6  a place for you. 7  14:3 And if I go and make ready 8  a place for you, I will come again and take you 9  to be with me, 10  so that where I am you may be too. 14:4 And you know the way where I am going.” 11 

14:5 Thomas said, 12 Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way? 14:6 Jesus replied, 13 I am the way, and the truth, and the life. 14  No one comes to the Father except through me. 14:7 If you have known me, you will know my Father too. 15  And from now on you do know him and have seen him.”

14:8 Philip said, 16 Lord, show us the Father, and we will be content.” 17  14:9 Jesus replied, 18 Have I been with you for so long, and you have not known 19  me, Philip? The person who has seen me has seen the Father! How can you say, ‘Show us the Father? 14:10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me? 20  The words that I say to you, I do not speak on my own initiative, 21  but the Father residing in me performs 22  his miraculous deeds. 23  14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me, but if you do not believe me, 24  believe because of the miraculous deeds 25  themselves.
