I Am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life
1 # ver. 27; [ch. 16:22, 23; 1 Pet. 3:14] “Let not your hearts be troubled. # See ch. 12:44 Believe in God; # 14:1 Or You believe in God believe also in me. 2In #[ch. 2:16] my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that #ch. 16:7; [ch. 8:21, 22; 13:33, 36]I go to prepare a place for you?#14:2 Or In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you #ver. 18, 28; [ch. 21:22, 23] to myself, that #See ch. 12:26where I am you may be also. 4And you know the way to where I am going.”#14:4 Some manuscripts Where I am going you know, and the way you know 5#See ch. 11:16 Thomas said to him, “Lord, #ch. 13:36we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6Jesus said to him, “I am #Heb. 9:8; 10:20; [Eph. 2:18] the way, and #ch. 1:14, 17; [1 John 5:20] the truth, and #See ch. 11:25the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7#ch. 8:19 If you had known me, you would have #1 John 2:13, 14 known my Father also.#14:7 Or If you know me, you will know my Father also, or If you have known me, you will know my Father also From now on you do know him and #[ch. 6:46]have seen him.”
8 # ch. 1:43, 44; 12:21 Philip said to him, “Lord, #[Ex. 33:18]show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” 9Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? #ch. 12:45; [ch. 10:30; 15:24; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:3]Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10Do you not believe that #See ch. 10:38 I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you #See ch. 5:19, 20I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11Believe me that #[See ver. 10 above] I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else #See ch. 5:36believe on account of the works themselves.
12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, # [Matt. 17:20; 21:21; Mark 11:23; 16:17] whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I # ver. 28; ch. 16:28; [ch. 7:33; 13:1, 3; 16:5, 10, 17; 17:11, 13; 20:17] am going to the Father. 13#ch. 15:16; 16:23, 24; See Matt. 7:7 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that #See ch. 13:31the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14#[See ver. 13 above]If you ask me#14:14 Some manuscripts omit me anything in my name, I will do it.

15 # ver. 21, 23; ch. 15:10; 1 John 5:3; 2 John 6 “If you love me, you will # See 1 John 2:3 keep my commandments. 16And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another #ver. 26; ch. 15:26; 16:7Helper,#14:16 Or Advocate, or Counselor; also 14:26; 15:26; 16:7 to be with you forever, 17even #ch. 15:26; 16:13; [1 Cor. 2:12-14; 1 John 2:27; 4:6; 5:6] the Spirit of truth, #1 Cor. 2:14 whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and #Acts 2:4; [1 John 2:27; 2 John 2]; See Rom. 8:9will be#14:17 Some manuscripts and is in you.
18 “I will not leave you as orphans; # ver. 3, 28 I will come to you. 19#See ch. 7:33 Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but #[ch. 12:45; 16:16] you will see me. #[Rom. 5:10; Eph. 2:5; Rev. 20:4]Because I live, you also will live. 20#ch. 16:23, 26 In that day you will know that #ver. 10 I am in my Father, and #[ch. 15:4-7]; See 1 John 2:28 you in me, and #ch. 17:21, 23, 26I in you. 21#[ch. 7:17; 8:31, 32] Whoever has my commandments and #ver. 15; 1 John 2:5 keeps them, he it is who loves me. And #ch. 16:27 he who loves me #[ch. 12:26] will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and #See ch. 7:4manifest myself to him.” 22#Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it #[Acts 10:40, 41]that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” 23Jesus answered him, #See ver. 15, 21 “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and #Rev. 3:20 we will come to him and #[2 Cor. 6:16; 1 John 2:24]make our home with him. 24Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And #[ver. 10]; See ch. 7:16the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.
25 “These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. 26But the #See ver. 16 Helper, the Holy Spirit, #[Luke 24:49; Acts 2:33, with ch. 15:26; 16:7] whom the Father will send in my name, #ch. 16:13; 1 Cor. 2:10; 1 John 2:20, 27 he will teach you all things and #See ch. 2:22bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. 27#ch. 20:19, 21, 26; Luke 24:36 Peace I leave with you; #ch. 16:33; Col. 3:15; [Eph. 2:17; Phil. 4:7] my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. #ver. 1 Let not your hearts be troubled, neither #2 Tim. 1:7let them be afraid. 28#ver. 2-4 You heard me say to you, #See ch. 8:21 ‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I #See ver. 12 am going to the Father, for #[ch. 10:29; Phil. 2:6]the Father is greater than I. 29And #ch. 13:19; 16:4now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe. 30I will no longer talk much with you, for #See ch. 12:31 the ruler of this world is coming. #[ch. 17:14; 18:36; Heb. 4:15]He has no claim on me, 31but I do #ch. 12:49, 50; Phil. 2:8; Heb. 5:8 as the Father has commanded me, #ch. 17:21, 23so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go from here.
