In My Father’s House Are Many Rooms

1And he sayde vnto his disciples, Let not your hearte be troubled: Ye beleue in god, beleue also in me. 2In my fathers house, are many dwellyng places: If it were not so, I woulde haue tolde you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And yf I go to prepare a place for you, I wyll come agayne, and receaue you, euen vnto my selfe: that where I am, there may ye be also. 4And whither I go, ye knowe, and the way ye knowe.

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

5Thomas sayth vnto hym: Lorde, we knowe not whither thou goest: And howe is it possible for vs to knowe the waye? 6Iesus sayth vnto hym: I am the way, and the trueth, and the lyfe. No man cometh vnto the father, but by me.

7If ye had knowen me, ye had knowen my father also. And nowe ye knowe hym, and haue seene hym.

8Philip sayth vnto hym: Lorde, shewe vs the father, and it suffiseth vs. 9Iesus sayth vnto hym: Haue I ben so long tyme with you, & yet hast thou not knowen me? Philip, he that hath seene me, hath seene the father. And howe sayest thou then, shewe vs the father? 10Beleuest thou not, that I am in the father, & the father in me? The wordes that I speake vnto you, I speake not of my selfe: but the father that dwelleth in me, is he that doth the workes. 11Beleue me, that I am in the father, and the father in me: Or els beleue me for the workes sake. 12Ueryly, veryly I say vnto you, he that beleueth on me, the workes that I do, the same shal he do also, and greater workes then these shall he do, because I go vnto the father. 13And whatsoeuer ye aske in my name, that wyll I do, that the father may be glorified in the sonne. 14If ye shall aske any thing in my name, I wyll do it.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit
(John 16:5–16)

15If ye loue me, kepe my commaundementes,

16And I wyll pray the father, and he shall geue you another comforter, that he may byde with you for euer: 17Euen the spirite of trueth, whom the worlde can not receaue, because the worlde seeth hym not, neither knoweth hym. But ye knowe hym: For he dwelleth with you, and shalbe in you.

18I wyll not leaue you comfortlesse, but wyll come to you. 19Yet a litle whyle, and the worlde shall see me no more: but ye shall see me, because I lyue, and ye shall lyue also. 20That day shall ye knowe, that I am in my father, and you in me, & I in you. 21He that hath my commaundementes, and kepeth them, the same is he that loueth me: And he that loueth me, shalbe loued of my father, and I wyll loue him, and wyll shew myne owne selfe to hym. 22Iudas sayth vnto hym, not Iudas Iscariot: Lorde, what is done, that thou wylt shewe thy selfe vnto vs, and not vnto the worlde? 23Iesus aunswered, & sayde vnto hym: If a man loue me, he wyll kepe my sayinges: and my father wyll loue hym, and we wyll come vnto hym, and dwell with hym. 24He that loueth me not, kepeth not my sayinges: And the word which ye heare, is not myne, but the fathers which sent me.

25These thynges haue I spoken vnto you, beyng yet present with you. 26But the comforter, which is the holy ghost, whom the father wyll sende in my name, he shal teach you all thinges, & bryng all thynges to your remebraunce whatsoeuer I haue sayde vnto you.

Peace I Leave with You

27Peace I leaue with you, my peace I geue vnto you: Not as the worlde geueth, geue I vnto you. Let not your heartes be greeued, neither feare. 28Ye haue hearde howe I sayde vnto you, I go away, and come agayne vnto you. Yf ye loued me, ye woulde veryly reioyce, because I sayde, I go vnto the father: for the father is greater then I. 29And nowe haue I shewed you before it come, that when it is come to passe, ye myght beleue. 30Hereafter wyll I not talke many wordes vnto you: For the prince of this worlde cometh, and hath nought in me. 31But that the worlde may knowe that I loue the father: And as the father gaue me commaundement, euen so do I. Ryse, let vs go hence.
