The World's Hatred For The Disciples

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love its own; but because ye are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, on this account the world hates you. 20  Remember the word which I spake to you, 'A servant is not greater than his lord.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things will they do to you for My name's sake; because they know not Him Who sent Me.
