:B:1 I am the true vine and my Father is the vine grower. 2 If any of my branches doesnt bear fruit, he breaks it off
3 You are already made clean by the word I have spoken to you
5 I am the vine and you are the branches. As long as you remain in me and I in you, you bear much fruit
7 If you remain in me and my words in you, you may ask whatever you want and it will be given to you. 8 My Father is glorified when you bear much fruit: it is then that you become my disciples.
9 As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you
11 I have told you all this, that my own joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. 12 This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you. 13 There is no greater love than this, to give ones life for ones friends
15 I shall not call you servants any more, be cause servants do not know what their mas ter is about. Instead I have called you friends, since I have made known to you everything I learned from my Father.
16 You did not choose me
17 This is my command, that you love one another.
The hostile world
:B:18 If the world hates you, re member that the world hated me before you. 19 This would not be so if you belonged to the world, because the world loves its own. But you are not of the world since I have chosen you from the world
20 Remember what I told you: the servant is not greater than his master
22 If I had not come to tell them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Those who hate me hate my Father.
24 If I had not done among them what no one else has ever done, they would have no sin. But after they have seen all this, they hate me and my Father, 25 and the words written in their law be come true: Theyhated me without cause.
The Spirit will come
:B:26 From the Father, I will send you the Spirit of truth. When this Helper has come from the Father, he will be my witness, 27 and you, too, will be my witnesses for you have been with me from the beginning.
