And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper, so that he may dwell with you into the age, the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it does not see nor know it. But ye know it, because it dwells with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphaned. I am coming to you.

I am the TRUE grapevine, and my Father is the farmer. Every branch in me not bearing fruit, he removes it. And every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it, so that it may bear more fruit. Now ye are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. read more.
Dwell in me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it dwells in the grapevine, so neither ye, if ye do not dwell in me. I am the grapevine, ye are the branches. He who dwells in me, and I in him, this man bears much fruit, because without me ye can do nothing. If any man does not dwell in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and are burned. If ye dwell in me, and my sayings dwell in you, ye will ask whatever ye may want, and it will be done to you. By this my Father is glorified, that ye may bear much fruit, and ye will become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Dwell ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye will dwell in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments, and dwell in his love. These things I have spoken to you that my joy may dwell in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that ye love each other, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that some man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do as many things as I command you. I no longer call you bondmen, because the bondman does not know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, because all things that I heard from my Father, I made known to you. Ye did not choose out me, but I chose out you, and appointed you, so that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit may remain, so that anything whatever ye may ask of the Father in my name, he may give you. These things I command you, so that ye may love each other. If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you. 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. 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. But all these things they will do to you because of my name, because they have not known him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me hates my Father also. 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. But, that the word that is written in their law may be fulfilled, They hated me without cause. 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.

But now I go to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, Where do thou go? But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I depart, for if I do not depart, the helper will not come to you. But whenever I go, I will send him to you. read more.
And having come, he will convict the world about sin, and about justice, and about judgment. About sin because they truly did not believe in me, and about justice because I go to the Father, and ye see me no more, and about judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged. I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now. However when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. For he will not speak from himself, but as many things as he may hear, he will speak. And he will report to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me because he will receive from me, and will report to you. All things, as many as the Father has are mine. Because of this I said that he takes from me, and will report to you.


I am LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shall have no other gods before me. Thou shall not make to thee a graven image, nor any likeness [of anything] that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. read more.
Thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them, for I, LORD thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of those who hate me,

Now after these things the Lord also appointed seventy other men, and sent them by twos before his face into every city and place where he himself was going to come. Therefore he said to them, The harvest indeed is plentiful, but the workmen are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth workmen into his harvest. Go ye. Behold, I send you forth as lambs in the midst of wolves. read more.
Carry no bag, no pouch, no shoes, and greet no man on the way. And into whatever house ye enter, first say, Peace to this house. And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him, and if not, it will return to you. And remain in the same house eating and drinking from their things, for the workman is worthy of his wage. Do not depart from house to house. And into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat the things that are set before you. And heal the weak in it, and say to them, The kingdom of God has come near to you. But into whatever city ye enter, and they will not receive you, after departing into the thoroughfares if it, say, Even the dust that clings on us from your city, we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know ye this, that the kingdom of God has come near to you. I say to you, that it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe to thee, Chorazin! Woe to thee, Bethsaida! Because if the mighty works were done in Tyre and Sidon, which were done in you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which was exalted to the sky, will be thrust down to Hades. He who hears you hears me, and he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me.

Know therefore that LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and loving kindness with those who love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations, and repays those who hate him to their face, to destroy them. He will not be slack to him who hates him. He will repay him to his face.

For LORD will judge his people, and regrets for his servants, when he sees that [their] power is gone, and there is none [remaining], shut up or left at large. And he will say, Where are their gods, the rock in which they took refuge, which ate the fat of their sacrifices, [and] drank the wine of their drink-offering? Let them rise up and help you, let them be your protection. read more.
See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me. I kill, and I make alive. I wound, and I heal. And there is none that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, As I live forever, if I whet my glittering sword, and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will render vengeance to my adversaries, and will recompense those who hate me.

Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, nor will he uphold the evil-doers. He will yet fill thy mouth with laughter, and thy lips with shouting. Those who hate thee shall be clothed with shame, and the tent of the wicked shall be no more.

For the king trusts in LORD. And through the loving kindness of the Most High he shall not be moved. Thy hand will find out all thine enemies. Thy right hand will find out those who hate thee. Thou will make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thine anger. LORD will swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them. read more.
Thou will destroy their fruit from the earth, and their seed from among the sons of men. For they intended evil against thee. They conceived a device which they are not able to perform. For thou will make them turn their back. Thou will make ready with thy bowstrings against their face.

O God, keep thou not silence. Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult, and those who hate thee have lifted up the head. They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult together against thy hidden ones. read more.
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent. They make a covenant against thee: the tents of Edom, and the Ishmaelites, Moab, and the Hagarenes, Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre, Assyria also is joined with them; they have helped the sons of Lot. Selah. Do thou to them as to Midian, as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon, who perished at Endor, who became as dung for the earth. Make their ranking men like Oreb and Zeeb, yea, all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna, who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God. O my God, make them like the whirling dust, as stubble before the wind, as the fire that burns the forest, and as the flame that sets the mountains on fire. So pursue them with thy tempest, and terrify them with thy storm. Fill their faces with confusion, that they may seek thy name, O LORD. Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever. Yea, let them be confounded and perish,

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. Become ye therefore wise as serpents, and innocent as doves. But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues, and ye will be brought to governors and even kings because of me, for a witness to them and to the Gentiles. read more.
But when they deliver you up, be not anxious how or what ye should speak, for it will be given you in that hour what ye will speak. For ye are not who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking in you. And a brother will deliver up a brother to death, and a father a child. And children will rise up against parents, and condemn them to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name, but he who endures to the end, this man will be saved.

And when Jesus departed he was going from the temple. And his disciples came near to exhibit to him the buildings of the temple. But Jesus said to them, Do ye not see all these things? Truly I say to you, there will be left here, no, not a stone upon a stone, that will not be thrown down. And as he sat on the mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign of thy coming, and of the termination of the age? read more.
And having answered, Jesus said to them, See that not any man may lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am the Christ, and will lead many astray. And ye are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye not be alarmed, for all the things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes in places. But all these things are the beginning of travail. Then they will deliver you up for tribulation, and will kill you, and ye will be hated by all the nations because of my name.

And as he went forth out of the temple, one of his disciples says to him, Teacher, see what kind of stones and what kind of buildings. And Jesus having answered, he said to him, See thou these great buildings? There will be left, no, not a stone upon a stone, that will, no, not be brought down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew questioned him privately, read more.
Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign when all these things are going to be fulfilled? And having answered them, Jesus began to say to them, Watch that not any man lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am, and they will lead many astray. And when ye may hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not alarmed, for it must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These things are the beginnings of travails. But watch ye yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and ye will be beaten in synagogues. And ye will be stood before rulers and kings because of me, for a testimony to them. And the good-news must first be preached to all the nations. But when they lead you, delivering you up, be not anxious before what ye might speak, nor meditate. But whatever may be given you in that hour, speak ye this, for ye are not who speak, but the Holy Spirit. And brother will betray brother to death, and a father a child. And children will rise up against parents, and will condemn them to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name, but he who endures to the end, this man will be saved.

And as some spoke about the temple, that it was adorned with fine stones and gifts, he said, These things that ye see, the days will come during which there will not be left a stone upon a stone that will not be thrown down. And they questioned him, saying, Teacher, when therefore will these things be? And what is the sign when these things are going to happen? read more.
And he said, Watch that ye may not be led astray, for many will come in my name, saying, I am, and, The time has come near. Go ye not therefore after them. And when ye may hear of wars and tumults, do not be alarmed, for these things must first happen, but the end is not straightaway. Then he said to them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And great earthquakes will be in various places, and famines and plagues. And there will be fearful sights and great signs from the sky. But before all these things, they will throw their hands on you, and will persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. But it will go out from you for testimony. Settle therefore in your hearts not to premeditate to make defense. For I will give you a mouth and wisdom that all those who oppose you will not be able to contradict or to resist. And ye will be betrayed even by parents, and kinsmen, and friends, and brothers. And some of you they will condemn to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name.

Jesus spoke these things, and he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify thy Son, that the Son may also glorify thee, just as thou gave him authority over all flesh, so that all things that thou have given him, he will give them eternal life. And this is eternal life, that they should know thee the only TRUE God, and Jesus Christ whom thou sent. read more.
I glorified thee on the earth. I finished the work which thou have given me that I should do. And now, Father, glorify thou me with thyself with the glory that I had with thee before the world was. I manifested thy name to the men whom thou gave me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gave them to me, and they have kept thy word. Now they know that all things, as many as thou gave me are from thee. Because the sayings that thou gave to me, I gave to them. And they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou sent me. I pray about them. I do not pray about the world, but about whom thou have given me, because they are for thee. And all my things are thy things, and thy things are my things, and I am glorified in them. And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name that thou have given to me, so that they may be one, just as we. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name. Whom thou gave to me, I kept, and none of them was destroyed, except the son of destruction, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now I come to thee. And I speak these things in the world, so that they may have my joy fulfilled in them. I have given them thy word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

Because this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love each other. Not as Cain. He was of the wicked, and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were wrong, and his brother's right. Marvel not, my brothers, if the world hates you.

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.


And likewise also the Spirit helps our weaknesses, for we know not what we would pray for as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings. And he who searches the hearts knows what is the mentality of the Spirit, because he appeals to God for the sanctified. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who are the called according to purpose.

But as it is written, What an eye has not seen, and an ear has not heard, and have not arisen in a heart of a man, are things that God prepared for those who love him. But God disclosed it to us through his Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

I have spoken these things to you, so that ye may not be caused to stumble. They will make you excommunicated from the synagogues. But the hour comes that every man who kills you will presume to be offering service to God. And they will do these things, because they have not known the Father nor me. read more.
But I have told you these things, so that when the hour comes, ye may remember that I told you of them. But I did not tell you these things from the beginning because I was with you. But now I go to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, Where do thou go? But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I depart, for if I do not depart, the helper will not come to you. But whenever I go, I will send him to you. And having come, he will convict the world about sin, and about justice, and about judgment. About sin because they truly did not believe in me, and about justice because I go to the Father, and ye see me no more, and about judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged. I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now. However when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. For he will not speak from himself, but as many things as he may hear, he will speak. And he will report to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me because he will receive from me, and will report to you.

And we have such confidence toward God through Christ, not that we are sufficient of ourselves to reckon anything as from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us qualified helpers of a new covenant, not of a document, but of a spirit, for the document kills but the spirit makes alive.



I am the TRUE grapevine, and my Father is the farmer. Every branch in me not bearing fruit, he removes it. And every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it, so that it may bear more fruit. Now ye are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. read more.
Dwell in me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it dwells in the grapevine, so neither ye, if ye do not dwell in me. I am the grapevine, ye are the branches. He who dwells in me, and I in him, this man bears much fruit, because without me ye can do nothing. If any man does not dwell in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and are burned. If ye dwell in me, and my sayings dwell in you, ye will ask whatever ye may want, and it will be done to you. By this my Father is glorified, that ye may bear much fruit, and ye will become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Dwell ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye will dwell in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments, and dwell in his love. These things I have spoken to you that my joy may dwell in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that ye love each other, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that some man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do as many things as I command you. I no longer call you bondmen, because the bondman does not know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, because all things that I heard from my Father, I made known to you. Ye did not choose out me, but I chose out you, and appointed you, so that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit may remain, so that anything whatever ye may ask of the Father in my name, he may give you. These things I command you, so that ye may love each other. If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you. 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. 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. But all these things they will do to you because of my name, because they have not known him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me hates my Father also. 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. But, that the word that is written in their law may be fulfilled, They hated me without cause. 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. And ye also testify, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye murdered, having hung on a tree. God exalted this man with his right hand, a Pathfinder and a Savior to give repentance to Israel and remission of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things, and also the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.

And now behold, I, bound in the spirit, am going to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me in it, except that the Holy Spirit testifies from city to city, saying that bonds and afflictions await me.

For this reason I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles, since indeed ye heard of the administration of the grace of God, which was given to me for you, that according to revelation he made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. read more.
With which reading ye can recognize my understanding in the mystery of the Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by Spirit to his holy apostles and prophets.

And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, after indeed foretelling,

And who is he who overcomes the world, if not he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And it is the Spirit that testifies, because the Spirit is truth. Because those who testify are three:



For I think God has exhibited us the apostles least, as men sentenced to die, because we became a spectacle to the world, both to heavenly agents and to men. We are foolish for the sake of Christ, but ye are wise in Christ. We are weak, but ye are strong. Ye are esteemed, but we are disreputable. As far as the present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are ill clothed, and are treated roughly, and are homeless. read more.
And we toil, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure; being slandered, we entreat. We became as trash of the world, an offscouring of all things, until now.

And as he went forth out of the temple, one of his disciples says to him, Teacher, see what kind of stones and what kind of buildings. And Jesus having answered, he said to him, See thou these great buildings? There will be left, no, not a stone upon a stone, that will, no, not be brought down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew questioned him privately, read more.
Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign when all these things are going to be fulfilled? And having answered them, Jesus began to say to them, Watch that not any man lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am, and they will lead many astray. And when ye may hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not alarmed, for it must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These things are the beginnings of travails. But watch ye yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and ye will be beaten in synagogues. And ye will be stood before rulers and kings because of me, for a testimony to them. And the good-news must first be preached to all the nations. But when they lead you, delivering you up, be not anxious before what ye might speak, nor meditate. But whatever may be given you in that hour, speak ye this, for ye are not who speak, but the Holy Spirit. And brother will betray brother to death, and a father a child. And children will rise up against parents, and will condemn them to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name, but he who endures to the end, this man will be saved.

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. Become ye therefore wise as serpents, and innocent as doves. But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues, and ye will be brought to governors and even kings because of me, for a witness to them and to the Gentiles. read more.
But when they deliver you up, be not anxious how or what ye should speak, for it will be given you in that hour what ye will speak. For ye are not who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking in you. And a brother will deliver up a brother to death, and a father a child. And children will rise up against parents, and condemn them to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name, but he who endures to the end, this man will be saved. But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the other, for truly I say to you, ye will, no, not have completed the cities of Israel, until the Son of man comes. A pupil is not above his teacher, nor a bondman above his lord. It is enough for the pupil that he becomes like his teacher, and the bondman like his lord. If they have called the house-ruler Beelzebub, how much more those of his household.

And when Jesus departed he was going from the temple. And his disciples came near to exhibit to him the buildings of the temple. But Jesus said to them, Do ye not see all these things? Truly I say to you, there will be left here, no, not a stone upon a stone, that will not be thrown down. And as he sat on the mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign of thy coming, and of the termination of the age? read more.
And having answered, Jesus said to them, See that not any man may lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am the Christ, and will lead many astray. And ye are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye not be alarmed, for all the things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes in places. But all these things are the beginning of travail. Then they will deliver you up for tribulation, and will kill you, and ye will be hated by all the nations because of my name. And then many will be caused to stumble, and they will betray each other and will hate each other.

And as some spoke about the temple, that it was adorned with fine stones and gifts, he said, These things that ye see, the days will come during which there will not be left a stone upon a stone that will not be thrown down. And they questioned him, saying, Teacher, when therefore will these things be? And what is the sign when these things are going to happen? read more.
And he said, Watch that ye may not be led astray, for many will come in my name, saying, I am, and, The time has come near. Go ye not therefore after them. And when ye may hear of wars and tumults, do not be alarmed, for these things must first happen, but the end is not straightaway. Then he said to them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And great earthquakes will be in various places, and famines and plagues. And there will be fearful sights and great signs from the sky. But before all these things, they will throw their hands on you, and will persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. But it will go out from you for testimony. Settle therefore in your hearts not to premeditate to make defense. For I will give you a mouth and wisdom that all those who oppose you will not be able to contradict or to resist. And ye will be betrayed even by parents, and kinsmen, and friends, and brothers. And some of you they will condemn to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name. And, no, not a hair of your head will perish. In your perseverance ye gain your souls.

And those who heard lifted up a voice to God with one accord, and said, Thou Master, the God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all things in them. He who said through the mouth of thy boy David, Why do the nations rage, and the peoples meditate vain things? The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together, against the Lord, and against his Christ. read more.
For in truth, against thy holy Boy Jesus, whom thou anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, were gathered together,

But Saul, still breathing threat and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, after going to the high priest, he requested letters from him for Damascus, to the synagogues, so that if he found any who were of the Way, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. And on going, it came to pass for him to approach Damascus. And suddenly there shone around him a light out of heaven. read more.
And after falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do thou persecute me? And he said, Who are thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecute.

The man departed and reported to the Jews that Jesus is the man who made him well. And because of this the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill him, because he did these things on a Sabbath. But Jesus answered them, My Father works until now and I work. read more.
Because of this therefore the Jews sought even more to kill him, because not only did he relax the Sabbath, but also he called God his own Father, making himself equal to God.

And when Jesus departed he was going from the temple. And his disciples came near to exhibit to him the buildings of the temple. But Jesus said to them, Do ye not see all these things? Truly I say to you, there will be left here, no, not a stone upon a stone, that will not be thrown down. And as he sat on the mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign of thy coming, and of the termination of the age? read more.
And having answered, Jesus said to them, See that not any man may lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am the Christ, and will lead many astray. And ye are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye not be alarmed, for all the things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes in places. But all these things are the beginning of travail. Then they will deliver you up for tribulation, and will kill you, and ye will be hated by all the nations because of my name.

And as he went forth out of the temple, one of his disciples says to him, Teacher, see what kind of stones and what kind of buildings. And Jesus having answered, he said to him, See thou these great buildings? There will be left, no, not a stone upon a stone, that will, no, not be brought down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew questioned him privately, read more.
Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign when all these things are going to be fulfilled? And having answered them, Jesus began to say to them, Watch that not any man lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am, and they will lead many astray. And when ye may hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not alarmed, for it must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These things are the beginnings of travails. But watch ye yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and ye will be beaten in synagogues. And ye will be stood before rulers and kings because of me, for a testimony to them. And the good-news must first be preached to all the nations. But when they lead you, delivering you up, be not anxious before what ye might speak, nor meditate. But whatever may be given you in that hour, speak ye this, for ye are not who speak, but the Holy Spirit. And brother will betray brother to death, and a father a child. And children will rise up against parents, and will condemn them to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name, but he who endures to the end, this man will be saved.

And as some spoke about the temple, that it was adorned with fine stones and gifts, he said, These things that ye see, the days will come during which there will not be left a stone upon a stone that will not be thrown down. And they questioned him, saying, Teacher, when therefore will these things be? And what is the sign when these things are going to happen? read more.
And he said, Watch that ye may not be led astray, for many will come in my name, saying, I am, and, The time has come near. Go ye not therefore after them. And when ye may hear of wars and tumults, do not be alarmed, for these things must first happen, but the end is not straightaway. Then he said to them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And great earthquakes will be in various places, and famines and plagues. And there will be fearful sights and great signs from the sky. But before all these things, they will throw their hands on you, and will persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. But it will go out from you for testimony. Settle therefore in your hearts not to premeditate to make defense. For I will give you a mouth and wisdom that all those who oppose you will not be able to contradict or to resist. And ye will be betrayed even by parents, and kinsmen, and friends, and brothers. And some of you they will condemn to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name.

I am the TRUE grapevine, and my Father is the farmer. Every branch in me not bearing fruit, he removes it. And every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it, so that it may bear more fruit. Now ye are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. read more.
Dwell in me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it dwells in the grapevine, so neither ye, if ye do not dwell in me. I am the grapevine, ye are the branches. He who dwells in me, and I in him, this man bears much fruit, because without me ye can do nothing. If any man does not dwell in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and are burned. If ye dwell in me, and my sayings dwell in you, ye will ask whatever ye may want, and it will be done to you. By this my Father is glorified, that ye may bear much fruit, and ye will become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Dwell ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye will dwell in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments, and dwell in his love. These things I have spoken to you that my joy may dwell in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that ye love each other, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that some man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do as many things as I command you. I no longer call you bondmen, because the bondman does not know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, because all things that I heard from my Father, I made known to you. Ye did not choose out me, but I chose out you, and appointed you, so that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit may remain, so that anything whatever ye may ask of the Father in my name, he may give you. These things I command you, so that ye may love each other. If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you. 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.

Jesus spoke these things, and he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify thy Son, that the Son may also glorify thee, just as thou gave him authority over all flesh, so that all things that thou have given him, he will give them eternal life. And this is eternal life, that they should know thee the only TRUE God, and Jesus Christ whom thou sent. read more.
I glorified thee on the earth. I finished the work which thou have given me that I should do. And now, Father, glorify thou me with thyself with the glory that I had with thee before the world was. I manifested thy name to the men whom thou gave me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gave them to me, and they have kept thy word. Now they know that all things, as many as thou gave me are from thee. Because the sayings that thou gave to me, I gave to them. And they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou sent me. I pray about them. I do not pray about the world, but about whom thou have given me, because they are for thee. And all my things are thy things, and thy things are my things, and I am glorified in them. And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name that thou have given to me, so that they may be one, just as we. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name. Whom thou gave to me, I kept, and none of them was destroyed, except the son of destruction, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now I come to thee. And I speak these things in the world, so that they may have my joy fulfilled in them. I have given them thy word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

Because this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love each other. Not as Cain. He was of the wicked, and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were wrong, and his brother's right. Marvel not, my brothers, if the world hates you.

I pray not that thou should take them out of the world, but that thou should keep them from the evil. They are not of the world just as I am not of the world.

Jesus therefore says to them, My time is not yet here, but your time is always ready. The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify about it, that its works are evil.

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. But all these things they will do to you because of my name, because they have not known him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me hates my Father also. 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. But, that the word that is written in their law may be fulfilled, They hated me without cause.

Jesus therefore says to them, My time is not yet here, but your time is always ready. The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify about it, that its works are evil. Go ye up to this feast. I am not yet going to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled.
