GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ACCORDING TO JOHN
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
16:1 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever
killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
3 And these things will
they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
4 But these
things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I
told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because
I was with you.
5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you
asketh me, Whither goest thou?
6 But because I have said these things unto
you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It
is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will
not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8 And when he
is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because
I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince
of this world is judged.
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye
cannot bear them now.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he
will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever
he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall
take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
16 A little while, and ye shall
not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the
17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this
that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little
while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?
18 They said
therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he
19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto
them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall
not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
20 Verily, verily,
I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and
ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
21 A woman
when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she
is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a
man is born into the world.
22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will
see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may
25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time
cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you
plainly of the Father.
26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not
unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
27 For the Father himself loveth
you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world,
and go to the Father.
29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou
plainly, and speakest no proverb.
30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all
things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that
thou camest forth from God.
31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, 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 unto you, that in me ye might have
peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome
the key verse of John:
20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
to help you decide if you believe the Gospel in John Chapter Sixteen
1-16- Do you understand why salvation is by faith as you read these verses? You
see, Jesus went back to heaven to be with the Father, and you cannot see him physically
like the disciples did. So, Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to live IN
you and help you believe-- help you understand what God is doing in you, in the
Church, and in the world.
25-28- Do you believe Jesus was forever from eternity past, and always will be,
with God the Father?
33- Do you trust Jesus to keep you in this world from now on?
