Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:14 - ye are my friends, if ye may do whatever I command you;

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:20 - 'Remember the word that I said to you, A servant is not greater than his lord; if me they did persecute, you also they will persecute; if my word they did keep, yours also they will keep;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:21 - but all these things will they do to you, because of my name, because they have not known Him who sent me;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:22 - if I had not come and spoken to them, they were not having sin; but now pretext they have not for their sin.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:23 - 'He who is hating me, doth hate also my Father;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:24 - if I did not do among them the works that no other hath done, they were not having sin, and now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:25 - but -- that the word may be fulfilled that was written in their law -- They hated me without a cause.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:26 - 'And when the Comforter may come, whom I will send to you from the Father -- the Spirit of truth, who from the Father doth come forth, he will testify of me;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 15:27 - and ye also do testify, because from the beginning ye are with me.
