John 15:18-27 - The World's Hatred For The Disciples

18 If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love its own, but because ye are not of the world (instead I chose you out of the world), because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, A bondman is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you because of my name, because they have not known him who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates me hates my Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works that no other man has done, they would not have had sin, but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. 25 But, that the word that is written in their law may be fulfilled, They hated me without cause.

26 But when the helper comes whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me. 27 And ye also testify, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
