OET-RV YHN Chapter 14


This is still a very early look into the unfinished text of the Open English Translation of the Bible. Please double-check the text in advance before using in public.

14:1 Yeshua is the road to the father but will be leaving

14Yeshua continued telling them,Don’t be living in fear. You believe that God is real, and you also believe that I was sent by him. 2There are many places to live in my father’s residence—I would have told you if there wasn’t because I’m going there to prepare a place for all of you. 3And after I’ve gone to prepare that place, then I’ll be coming back again and will bring you to myself, so that where I am, you can all be there also. 4You know how to get where I’m going.

5Master,” Thomas asked, “we don’t even know where you’re going, let alone how to get there.”

6And Yeshua answered, “I am the path and the truth and the life. No one can get to the father except via me. 7If you had all known me, you would also have known my father, and from now on you do know him and have seen him.

8So Philip said, “Master, show us the father and that’ll be enough for us.”

9I’ve been with you all for quite some time,Yeshua replied, “and yet you still don’t even know me, Philip. 10You don’t believe that I am in the father and the father is in me. These things that I’ve been telling you all, I don’t just make them up myself, but the father who lives in me is doing what he wants. 11You all need to believe that I am in the father and the father is in me. If that’s hard, at least believe it because of what he’s doing. 12I can assure you all that anyone who believes that God sent me and is the source of the miracles that I do, that person will be able to do the same and even greater miracles because I am going to the father. 13Whatever you request from me with my name and authority, I will do it so that the father might be honoured because of the son. 14Anything that you all request using my name and authority will be done.

14:15 The father will be sending a different advocate

15If you all love me, you will obey my commands. 16And I will ask the father and he will give you another assistant to be with you all for this age— 17the spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it doesn’t see or know him.

18And I won’t leave you all here as orphans, but I will come back to you. 19It won’t be long now and the world won’t see me any more, but you will see me because I’ll be alive and you all will be alive also. 20At that time you will know that I am in my father, and you all are in me, and I am in you all.

21Anyone who takes my commands and obeys them, that’s the person who loves me, and anyone who loves me will be loved by my father, and I too will be loving them and will be revealing myself to them.

22Yudas (not Yudas Iscariot) asked, “Master, what’s going on? Why would you reveal yourself to us and not to the whole world?”

23Yeshua answered, “If anyone loves me, they’ll obey my teaching, and my father will love them and we will go to that person and live with them. 24But anyone who doesn’t love me, won’t obey my teaching. The words that you hear from me are not my own, but come from the father who sent me.

25I told you all this while I have been here with you all. 26But the holy spirit, the assistant who the father will be sending with my authority, he will be teaching you everything, and will be reminding you of everything that I told you all.

27I will leave peace with you all. I’m giving my peace to you all, but what I’m giving isn’t like what the world gives. Don’t be upset or afraid. 28You all heard me say that I’m going away and then will be coming back. If you really loved me, you’d be very happy that I’m going to the father, because the father is greater than me.

29But I’ve told you now before it happens, so that when it does come to pass, you’ll be able to believe that it was preplanned. 30I won’t have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of the world is coming and he has nothing in common with me, 31but he’s coming so that the world can know that I love the father and whatever the father told me to do, I’m doing it.

Come on, stand up. We need to be leaving this place.
