The Best and Most Important Online Catholic Books: The Gospel of St. John
The conclusion of Christ's last discourse to his disciples.
1 These things have I spoken to you, that you may not be scandalized.
2 They will put you out of the synagogues: yea, the hour cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doth a service to God.
3 And these things will they do to you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
4 But these things I have told you: that when the hour of them shall come, you may remember that I told you.
5 But I told you not these things from the beginning, because I was with you: And now I go to him that sent me: and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
6 But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
7 But I tell you the truth: it is expedient for you that I go: for if I go not, the Paraclete will not come to you: but if I go, I will send him to you.
8 And when he is come, he will convince the world of sin, and of justice, and of judgment.
9 Of sin indeed: because they have not believed in me.
10 And of justice: because I go to the Father, and you shall see me no longer:
11 And of judgment: because the prince of this world is already judged.
12 I have yet many things to say to you: but you cannot bear them now.
13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will teach you all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but what things soever he shall hear, he shall speak: and the things that are to come, he shall shew you.
14 He shall glorify me: because he shall receive of mine, and will declare it to you.
15 All things whatsoever the Father hath are mine. Therefore, I said, that he shall receive of mine, and will shew it to you.
16 A little while, and now you shall not see me, and again a little while, and you shall see me: because I go to the Father.
17 Then some of the disciples said one to another, What is this that he saith to us: A little while, and you shall not see me, and again a little while, and you shall see me: and because I go to the Father?
18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we know not what he speaketh.
19 And Jesus knew that they wished to ask him: and he said to them: Of this do you inquire among yourselves, because I said, A little while, and you shall not see me; and again a little while, and you shall see me.
20 Amen, amen, I say to you, that you shall lament and weep, but the world shall rejoice; and you shall be made sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
21 A woman, when she is in labour, hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but when she hath brought forth the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
22 So also you now indeed have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice: and your joy no man shall take from you.
23 And in that day you shall not ask me any thing. *Amen, amen I say to you: If you ask the Father any thing in my name, he will give it you.
24 Hitherto you have not asked any thing in my name: Ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.
25 These things I have spoken to you in proverbs. The hour cometh, when I will no more speak to you in proverbs, but will shew you plainly of the Father.
26 In that day you shall ask in my name, and I say not to you, that I will ask the Father for you.
27 For the Father himself loveth you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came forth from God.
28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again I leave the world, and I go to the Father.
29 His disciples say to him: Behold now thou speakest plainly, and speakest no proverb.
30 Now we know that thou knowest all things, and thou needest not that any man ask thee: by this we believe, that thou camest forth from God.
31 Jesus answered them: Do you now believe?
32 *Behold the hour cometh, and is now come, that you shall be dispersed, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
33 These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you shall have distress: but have confidence, I have overcome the world.
