Knijga O Kristu

Evanđelje po Ivanu 14

Isus, Put do Oca

1'Neka se ne uznemiruje vaše srce! Pouzdajte se u Boga i u mene!

U kući mojega Oca mnogo je stanova. Da nije tako, zar bih vam rekao: "Idem vam pripraviti mjesto'?

Kad odem i pripremim vam mjesto, opet ću se vratiti da vas uzmem k sebi da biste bili sa mnom.

A vi već znate put onamo kamo idem.'

'Ne znamo, Gospodine, ni kamo ideš

Isus mu reče: 'Ja sam put, istina i život. Nitko ne može doći Ocu osim po meni.

Kad biste mene poznavali, znali biste i tko mi je Otac.[a] Odsad ga poznajete i vidjeli ste ga.'

Filip mu reče: 'Gospodine, pokaži nam Oca i bit ćemo zadovoljni!'

Isus odgovori: 'Zar ti, Filipe, još ne znaš tko sam ja, čak ni pošto sam toliko vremena proveo s vama? Tko je vidio mene, vidio je i Oca. Zašto onda tražiš da ga vidiš?

10 Zar ne vjeruješ da sam ja u Ocu i Otac u meni? Riječi koje govorim nisu moje, nego Otac koji živi u meni čini svoja djela kroza me.

11 Vjerujte mi da sam ja u Ocu i da je Otac u meni. Vjerujte barem zbog samih djela koja ste vidjeli da činim.

12 Zaista vam kažem, tko vjeruje u mene, činit će djela kakva sam i ja činio, pa čak i veća, jer ja odlazim Ocu.

13 Ma što zamolili u moje ime, ja ću to učiniti da bi se Otac proslavio u Sinu.

14 Ma što zamolili u moje ime, ja ću to učiniti.

Isus obećaje Svetog Duha

15 Ako me volite, slušajte moje zapovijedi,

16 a ja ću moliti Oca i on će vam poslati drugog Utješitelja[b] koji vas nikad neće ostaviti:

17 Svetoga Duha, Duha Istine, kojega svijet ne može primiti jer ga ne vidi niti ga poznaje. No vi ga poznajete jer je sada uz vas i prebivat će u vama.

18 Neću vas ostaviti kao siročad. Opet ću vam doći.

19 Još samo malo i svijet me više neće vidjeti, ali vi ćete me ponovno vidjeti jer ja živim i jer ćete i vi živjeti.

20 U taj ćete dan spoznati da sam ja u Ocu, da ste vi u meni i ja u vama.

21 Tko sluša moje zapovijedi, taj me voli; i zato što me voli, moj će ga Otac voljeti, i ja ću ga voljeti i objaviti mu se.'

22 'Gospodine, zašto ćeš se objaviti samo nama, a ne i cijelom svijetu?' upita ga Juda (ne Iškariotski, već drugi učenik istog imena).

23 Isus mu odgovori: 'Oni koji me vole, činit će što im kažem. Moj će ih Otac zato voljeti pa ćemo doći i živjeti s njima.

24 A tko me ne voli, taj me i ne sluša. Riječi koje vam govorim nisu moje, nego od Oca koji me je poslao.

25 Govorio sam vam dok sam još bio s vama.

26 A kad Otac pošalje Utješitelja, Svetoga Duha, da me zastupa, on će vas mnogočemu naučiti i podsjetiti vas na sve što sam vam govorio.

27 Ostavljam vam mir - i to svoj mir - a mir koji vam ja dajem nije mir kakav daje svijet. Zato se ne uznemirujte i ne plašite.

28 Sjetite se što sam vam rekao: "Odlazim, ali ću vam opet doći.' Ako me zaista volite, bit ćete sretni što idem k Ocu jer je on veći od mene.

29 Rekao sam vam sve to prije nego što se dogodilo da vjerujete u mene kad se dogodi.

30 Nemam više mnogo vremena govoriti vam jer se približava zli knez ovoga svijeta. On nada mnom nema vlast,

31 ali ja ću dragovoljno učiniti ono što Otac od mene traži kako bi svijet spoznao da ja volim Oca. Ustanite! Hajdemo odavde!'

Amplified Bible

John 14

Jesus Comforts His Disciples

1“Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and I will take you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also. And [to the place] where I am going, you know the way.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going; so how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, [a]I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Jesus’ Oneness with the Father

If you had [really] known Me, you would also have known My Father. From now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”

Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father and then we will be satisfied.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’ 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you I do not say on My own initiative or authority, but the Father, abiding continually in Me, does His works [His attesting miracles and acts of power]. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe [Me] because of the [very] works themselves [which you have witnessed]. 12 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in My name [[b]as My representative], this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified and celebrated in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name [as My representative], I will do it.

15 “If you [really] love Me, you will keep and obey My commandments.

Role of the Spirit

16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another [c]Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive [and take to its heart] because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He (the Holy Spirit) remains with you continually and will be in you.

18 “I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, bereaved, and helpless]; I will come [back] to you. 19 After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also. 20 On that day [when that time comes] you will know for yourselves that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you. 21 The person who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him [I will make Myself real to him].” 22 Judas (not Iscariot) asked Him, “Lord, what has happened that You are going to reveal Yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered, “If anyone [really] loves Me, he will keep My word (teaching); and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our dwelling place with him. 24 One who does not [really] love Me does not keep My words. And the word (teaching) which you hear is not Mine, but is the Father’s who sent Me.

25 “I have told you these things while I am still with you. 26 But the [d]Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you. 27 Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.] 28 You heard Me tell you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming back to you.’ If you [really] loved Me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going [back] to the Father, for [e]the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does take place, you may believe and have faith [in Me]. 30 I will not speak with you much longer, for the ruler of the world (Satan) is coming. And he has no claim on Me [no power over Me nor anything that he can use against Me]; 31 but so that the world may know [without any doubt] that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father has commanded Me [and act in full agreement with Him]. Get up, let us go from here.
