In My Father’s House Are Many Rooms

1And he sayde vnto his disciples: Let not youre hert be afrayed. Yf ye beleue on God, the beleue also on me. 2In my fathers house are many dwellinges. Yf it were not so, I wolde haue tolde you: I go to prepare the place for you. 3And though I go to prepare the place for you, yet wil I come agayne, and receaue you vnto myself, yt ye maye be where I am. 4And whither I go, ye knowe, and the waye knowe ye also.

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

5Thomas sayde vnto him: LORDE, we knowe not whither thou goest, & how can we knowe the waye? 6Iesus sayde vnto him: I am the waye, and the trueth, and the life. Noman cometh to the father but by me.

7Yf ye knewe me, ye knewe my father also. And fro hece forth ye knowe hi, & haue sene him.

8Philippe sayde vnto him: LORDE, shewe vs the father, and it sufficeth vs. 9Iesus sayde vnto him: Thus longe am I with you, and hast thou not knowne me? Philippe, he that seyth me, seyth the father. And how sayest thou then: Shewe vs the father? 10Beleuest thou not that I am in the father, and that ye father is in me? The wordes that I speake vnto you, those speake not I of my self: but the father that dwelleth in me, he doth the workes. 11Beleue me, that I am in the father, and that ye father is in me: Or els, beleue me at the leest for the workes sake. 12Verely verely I saye vnto you: He that beleueth on me, shal do the workes that I do, and shal do greater then these: for I go to the father. 13And what soeuer ye axe ye father in my name, that wyl I do, that the father maye be praysed in the sonne. 14Yf ye axe eny thinge in my name, I wyl do it.

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

15Yf ye loue me, kepe my commaundementes.

16And I wyl praye the father, and he shal geue you another comforter, that he maye byde wt you for euer: 17euen ye sprete of trueth, whom ye worlde can not receaue, for it seyth him not, nether doth it knowe him: but ye knowe him, for he abydeth wt you, & shalbe in you

18I wil not leaue you cofortles, I come vnto you. 19It is yet a litle whyle, the shal the worlde se me nomore, but ye shal se me: for I lyue, and ye shal lyue also. 20In yt daye shal ye knowe, that I am in the father and ye in me, and I in you. 21He that hath my comaundementes, and kepeth them, the same is he that loueth me: and he that loueth me, shalbe loued of my father: & I wyl loue him, and wyl shewe myne awne self vnto him. 22Iudas sayde vnto hi: (not that Iscarioth) LORDE, What is the cause the, that thou wilt shewe thy self vnto vs, and not vnto the worlde? 23Iesus answered, and sayde vnto him: He that loueth me, wyl kepe my worde, and my father wyl loue him: and we wyl come vnto him, and wyll make oure dwellynge with him. 24But he that loueth me not, kepeth not my sayenges. And the worde that ye heare, is not myne, but the fathers which hath sent me.

25This haue I spoken vnto you, whyle I was with you. 26But that comforter euen ye holy goost, who my father shal sende in my name, he shal teache you all thinges, & bringe all to youre remembraunce, what soeuer I haue tolde you.

Peace I Leave with You

27Peace I leaue vnto you, my peace I geue you: I geue not vnto you, as the worlde geueth. Let not yor hert be troubled, nether let it be afrayed. 28Ye haue herde, that I sayde vnto you: I go, & come agayne vnto you. Yf ye loued me, ye wolde reioyse, because I saide, I go to the father: for ye father is greater the I. 29And now haue I tolde you, before it come, that whan it is come to passe, ye maye beleue: 30Here after wyl not I talke moch with you. For the prynce of this worlde cometh, and hath nothinge in me. 31But that the worlde maye knowe that I loue ye father. And as the father hath comaunded me, so do I. Aryse, let vs go hence.
