The Gospel According to Saint John
1 – If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; as I also have kept my Father’s commandments, and do abide in his love.
11 – These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be filled.
12 – This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you.
13 – Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
14 – You are my friends, if you do the things that I command you.
15 – I will not now call you servants: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth. But I have called you friends: because all things whatsoever I have heard of my Father, I have made known to you.
16 – You have not chosen me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed you, that you should go, and should bring forth fruit; and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
17 – These things I command you, that you love one another.
18 – If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you.
19 – If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 – Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.
21 – But all these things they will do to you for my name’s sake: because they know not him who sent me.
22 – If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
23 – He that hateth me, hateth my Father also.
24 – If I had not done among them the works that no other man hath done, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25 – But that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law: They hated me without cause.
26 – But when the Paraclete cometh, whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he shall give testimony of me.
27 – And you shall give testimony, because you are with me from the beginning.
