Context Readings

Jesus' Departure And The Coming Of The Holy Spirit

8 And when He does come, He will bring conviction to the world regarding sin [i.e., exposing it and producing guilt], regarding what is right [i.e., upholding godly standards], and regarding judgment [i.e., showing that sin condemns]. 9 [The world will be proven guilty] of sin for not believing in me. 10 [It will be shown] what is right because I am going [back] to the Father and you will not see me anymore.
