John 14

Jesus comforts his disciples

1‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.’

Jesus the way to the Father

Thomas said to him, ‘Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’

Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know[b] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.’

Philip said, ‘Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.’

Jesus answered: ‘Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, “Show us the Father”? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Jesus promises the Holy Spirit

15 ‘If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you for ever – 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[c] in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me any more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realise that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.’

22 Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, ‘But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?’

23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

25 ‘All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

28 ‘You heard me say, “I am going away and I am coming back to you.” If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. 30 I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, 31 but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.

‘Come now; let us leave.

约翰福音 14

耶稣是道路、真理、生命

1耶稣继续说:“你们心里不要忧愁,你们要信上帝,也要信我。 我父的家里有许多住处,不然我就不会说去为你们安排地方了。 我安排好了以后,必定回来接你们到我那里。我在哪里,让你们也在哪里。 你们知道通往我要去的地方的路。”

多马说:“主啊,你要去哪里,我们还不知道,又怎么会知道路呢?”

耶稣说:“我就是道路、真理、生命,若不借着我,没有人能到父那里。 你们若认识我,也会认识我的父。从现在起,你们不但认识祂,而且也看见祂了。”

腓力说:“主啊!求你让我们看看父,我们就心满意足了。”

耶稣说:“腓力,我和你们相处了这么久,你还不认识我吗?人看见了我,就看见了父,你怎么说‘让我们看看父’呢? 10 难道你不相信我在父里面,父也在我里面吗?我这些话不是凭自己讲的,而是住在我里面的父在做祂自己的工作。 11 你们应当相信我在父里面,父也在我里面。即使你们不信,也应该因我所做的而信我。 12 我实实在在地告诉你们,我所做的事,信我的人也要做,而且要做更大的事,因为我要回到父那里。 13 你们奉我的名无论求什么,我必应允,好让父在子身上得到荣耀。 14 你们若奉我的名向我求什么,我必应允。

应许赐下圣灵

15 “你们若爱我,就必遵守我的命令。 16 我要求父另外赐一位护慰者给你们,祂要永远和你们同在。 17 祂是真理的灵,世人不接受祂,因为他们看不见祂,也不认识祂;但你们却认识祂,因祂常与你们同在,并且要住在你们里面。 18 我不会撇下你们为孤儿,我必到你们这里来。 19 不久,世人就看不见我了,而你们却能看见我,因为我活着,你们也要活着。 20 到了那一天,你们就知道我在父里面,你们在我里面,我也在你们里面。 21 接受我的命令又遵行的,就是爱我的人。爱我的,父必定爱他,我也要爱他,并且要亲自向他显现。”

22 犹大,不是后来出卖耶稣的犹大,问耶稣:“主啊,你为什么只向我们显现而不向世人显现呢?”

23 耶稣回答说:“爱我的人必遵行我的道,我父也必爱他,并且我们要到他那里与他同住。 24 不爱我的人不会遵行我的道。你们所听见的道不是出于我自己,而是出于差我来的父。 25 我还与你们在一起的时候,将这些事情都告诉了你们。 26 但护慰者,就是父为我的名而差来的圣灵,将教导你们一切的事,并使你们想起我对你们说的一切话。 27 我把平安留给你们,把我的平安赐给你们,我赐给你们的平安不像世人给的平安。你们心里不要忧愁,也不要害怕。

28 “我对你们说过,我去了还要再回到你们这里。如果你们真的爱我,就应当为我去父那里而欢喜快乐,因为父比我大。 29 现在事情还没有发生,我便先告诉你们,到了事情发生的时候,你们就会相信。 30 我不再跟你们多谈,因为世界的王快要来了。他根本没有力量胜过我, 31 但这是为了让世人知道我爱父,父怎么吩咐我,我就怎么做。起来,我们走吧!”
