John 15:20-21 NLT
Do you remember what I told you? ‘A slave is not greater than the master.’ Since they persecuted me, naturally they will persecute you. And if they had listened to me, they would listen to you. They will do all this to you because of me, for they have rejected the one who sent me.
John 15:25 NLT
This fulfills what is written in their Scriptures: ‘They hated me without cause.’
