John 14: 1, 8-17, 22-27, 30-31

“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God; trust also in me.”… Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among yousuch a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father… The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority.  Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.  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 work temselves.  Very truly I tell you, all who have faith in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the father.  And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the son.  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will ddo it.  “If you love me, keep my commands.  And I will ask the father, and he will give you another advocate to help you an be with you forever— the spirit of truth.  The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him.  But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”…  Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said,  “But Lor, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”  Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.  My father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.  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.  “All this I have spoken while still with you.  But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind ou of everything I have said to you.  Peace I leave with you;  my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubed and do not be afraid. … “I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming.  He has no hold over me,  but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.”
