Farewell Discourse: Jesus’ final teaching

Gospel of John chapter 16

1 “I have said all this to you to keep you from falling away. 2* They will put you out of the synagogues; indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. 3 And they will do this because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you of them. “I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you. 5* But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ 6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts. 7* Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9* concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10* concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more; 11* concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
