THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ACCORDING TO JOHN

CHAPTER FOURTEEN

Steve Van Nattan's questions are in blue and are NOT inspired and final. You do not have to agree with Steve. Also, if you do not understand something you are reading, do not stop and dwell on it too long. Just keep reading and deal with what you do understand.

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

Remember the key verse of John:

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Questions to help you decide if you believe the Gospel in John Chapter Fourteen

Verse 1-4- Do you believe Jesus is making a place for you in heaven, and do you believe he will come back and bring you to be with himself?

Verse 5-6- Do you believe Jesus is the ONLY way to God? Some people believe in Jesus Christ, but they also believe other religions have people who are very sincere and will be accepted by God. Do you understand that no one has eternal life and the hope of heaven outside of The Lord Jesus Christ?

Verse 12-15- Do you understand that those who pray to the Father in Jesus name also keep the commandments of Jesus Christ? (This does not mean that we have to keep the law of Moses. Jesus made his own laws for us which we read in the Gospel books and in the Epistles, and his Spirit will show these laws to you.) As to Moses Law, the Ten Commandments, they were in you, in what we call our conscience, when you were born. They will teach you what pleases Jesus Christ.

Verse 16-18- Has God the Holy Spirit convinced you Jesus is real and cares about you right now? Jesus said that God the Holy Spirit would come to you and never leave.

Verse 25-26- Are you learning things in the Bible from God? Have you learned new things that you never saw before as you read through this Gospel of John this time? If you do not learn anything when you read the Bible, that is a very bad sign. You need to examine your heart and see if you have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and as God.
