page 951


1“These things I have spoken to you, that you ashould not be made to stumble.
2 a“They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming bthat whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.
3 “And athese things they will do 1to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.
4 “But these things I have told you, that when 1the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you.

The Work of the Holy Spirit

5 “But now I ago away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’
6 “But because I have said these things to you, asorrow has filled your heart.
7 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but aif I depart, I will send Him to you.
8 “And when He has acome, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 a“of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
10 a“of righteousness, bbecause I go to My Father and you see Me no more;
11 a“of judgment, because bthe ruler of this world is judged.
12 “I still have many things to say to you, abut you cannot bear them now.
13 “However, when He, athe Spirit of truth, has come, bHe will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
14 a“He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.
15 a“All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He 1will take of Mine and declare it to you.

Sorrow Will Turn to Joy

16 “A alittle while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, bbecause I go to the Father.”
17 Then some of His disciples said among themselves, “What is this that He says to us, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’; and, ‘because I go to the Father’?”
18 They said therefore, “What is

this that He says, ‘A little while’? We do not 1know what He is saying.”
19 Now Jesus knew that they desired to ask Him, and He said to them, “Are you inquiring among yourselves about what I said, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’?
20 “Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and alament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into bjoy.
21 a“A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.
22 “Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and ayour heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.
23 “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. aMost assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.
24 “Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, athat your joy may be bfull.

Jesus Christ Has Overcome the World

25 “These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language, but I will tell you aplainly about the Father.
26 “In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you;
27 a“for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and bhave believed that I came forth from God.
28 a“I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father.”
29 His disciples said to Him, “See, now You are speaking plainly, and using no figure of speech!
30 “Now we are sure that aYou know all things, and have no need that anyone should question You. By this bwe believe that You came forth from God.”
31 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe?
32 a“Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, beach to his 1own, and will leave Me alone. And cyet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
33 “These things I have spoken to you, that ain Me you may have peace. bIn the world you 1will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, cI have overcome the world.”

JOHN 17:1

Jesus Prays for Himself


1 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, athe hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,
2 a“as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He 1should give eternal life to as many bas You have given Him.
3 “And athis is eternal life, that they may know You, bthe only true God, and Jesus Christ cwhom You have sent.
4 a“I have glorified You on the earth. bI have finished the work cwhich You have given Me to do.
5 “And now, O Father, glorify Me together 1with Yourself, with the glory awhich I had with You before the world was.

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

6 a“I have 1manifested Your name to the men bwhom You have given Me out of the world. cThey were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.
7 “Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You.
8 “For I have given to them the words awhich You have given Me; and they have received them, band have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that cYou sent Me.
9 “I pray for them. aI do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.
10 “And all Mine are Yours, and aYours are Mine, and I am glorified in them.
11 a“Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, bkeep1 through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one cas We are.
12 “While I was with them 1in the world, aI kept them in 2Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and bnone of them is 3lost cexcept the son of 4perdition, dthat the Scripture might be fulfilled.
13 “But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 “I have given them Your word; aand the world has hated them because they are not of the world, bjust as I am not of the world.
15 “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but athat You should keep them from the evil one.
16 “They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
17 a“Sanctify1 them by Your truth. bYour word is truth.

20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who 1will believe in Me through their word;
21 a“that they all may be one, as bYou, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

Betrayal and Arrest in Gethsemane


1 When Jesus had spoken these words, aHe went out with His disciples over bthe Brook Kidron, where there was a garden,which He and His disciples entered.
2 And Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place; afor Jesus often met there with His disciples.
3 aThen Judas, having received a detachment of troops, and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.
4 Jesus therefore, aknowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “Whom are you seeking?”
5 They answered Him, a“Jesus 1of Nazareth.” Jesus said to them, “I am He.” And Judas,who bbetrayed Him, also stood with them.
6 Now when He said to them, “I am He,” they drew back and fell to the ground.
7 Then He asked them again, “Whom are you seeking?” And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.”
8 Jesus answered, “I have told you

that I am He. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go their way,”
9 that the saying might be fulfilled which He spoke, a“Of those whom You gave Me I have lost none.”
10 aThen Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.
11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink athe cup which My Father has given Me?”

Before the High Priest

12 Then the detachment of troops and the captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him.
13 And athey led Him away to bAnnas first, for he was the father-in-law of cCaiaphas who was high priest that year.
14 aNow it was Caiaphas who advised the Jews that it was 1expedient that one man should die for the people.

Peter Denies Jesus

15 aAnd Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did banother1 disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and went with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest.
16 aBut Peter stood at the door outside. Then the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought Peter in.
17 Then the servant girl who kept the door said to Peter, “You are not also one of this Man’s disciples, are you?” He said, “I am anot.”
18 Now the servants and officers who had made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold, and they warmed themselves. And Peter stood with them and warmed himself.

Jesus Questioned by the High Priest

19 The high priest then asked Jesus about His disciples and His doctrine.
20 Jesus answered him, a“I spoke openly to the world. I always taught bin synagogues and cin the temple, where 1the Jews always meet, and in secret I have said nothing.
21 “Why do you ask Me? Ask athose who have heard Me what I said to them. Indeed they know what I said.”
22 And when He had said these things, one of the officers who stood by astruck1 Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, “Do You answer the high priest like that?”
23 Jesus answered him, “If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why do you strike Me?”

Peter Denies Twice More

25 Now Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. aTherefore they said to him, “You are not also one of His disciples, are you?” He denied it and said, “I am not!”
26 One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of him whose ear Peter cut off, said, “Did I not see you in the garden with Him?”
27 Peter then denied again; and aimmediately a rooster crowed.

In Pilate’s Court

28 aThen they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the Praetorium, and it was early morning. bBut they themselves did not go into the 1Praetorium, lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover.
29 aPilate then went out to them and said, “What accusation do you bring against this Man?”
30 They answered and said to him, “If He were not 1an evildoer, we would not have delivered Him up to you.”
31 Then Pilate said to them, “You take Him and judge Him according to your law.” Therefore the Jews said to him, “It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death,”
32 athat the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled which He spoke, bsignifying by what death He would die.
33 aThen Pilate entered the 1Praetorium again, called Jesus, and said to Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?”
34 Jesus answered him, “Are you speaking for yourself about this, or did others tell you this concerning Me?”
35 Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered You to me. What have You done?”
36 aJesus answered, b“My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”
37 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, athat I should bear bwitness to the truth. Everyone who cis of the truth dhears My voice.”
38 Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, a“I find no fault in Him at all.

Taking the Place of Barabbas

39 a“But you have a custom that I should release someone to you at the

40 aThen they all cried again, saying, “Not this Man, but Barabbas!” bNow Barabbas was a robber.
