II. Jesus Crucified and Christ Resurrected
Going to Prepare the Way to Bring Man into God,
and as the Spirit Coming to Abide and Live in the Believers
for the Building of God's Habitation

A. Life's Indwelling -- For the Building of God's Habitation

1. The Dispensing of the Triune God --
For the Producing of His Abode

a. Jesus Going through Death and Christ Coming in Resurrection
to Bring the Believers into the Father

1 aDo not let your heart be troubled; believe into 1God, believe also into 1Me.

2 In 1aMy Father's house are 2many babodes; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I 3cgo to prepare a place for you.

3 And 1if I go and 2prepare a place for you, I aam coming again and will 3receive you to Myself, so that 4bwhere I am you also may be.

4 And where I am going you know the way.

5 Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going; how can we know the way?

6 Jesus said to him, I am the 1way and the 2areality and the blife; no one comes to the Father except through Me.

b. The Triune God Dispensing Himself
into the Believers

(1) The Father Embodied in the Son
Seen among the Believers

7 1If you had aknown Me, you would have known My Father also; and henceforth you bknow Him and have seen Him.

8 Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father and it is sufficient for us.

9 Jesus said to him, Have I been so long a time with you, and you have not known Me, Philip? He who has aseen Me has seen the Father; how is it that you say, Show us the Father?

10 Do you not believe that I am ain the Father and the bFather is in Me? The 1cwords that I say to you I do not speak dfrom Myself, but the Father who abides in Me does His works.

11 Believe Me that I am ain the Father and the Father is in Me; but if not, believe because of the bworks themselves.

12 Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes into Me, the works which I do he shall do also; and agreater than these he shall do because I am 1bgoing to the Father.

13 And whatever you aask 1in My name, that I will do, that the 2Father may be bglorified in the Son.

14 If you aask Me anything in My name, I will do it.

(2) The Son Realized as the Spirit
to Abide in the Believers

15 If you alove Me, you will keep My bcommandments.

16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another 1aComforter, that He may be with you forever,

17 Even the 1aSpirit of reality, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him; but you know Him, because 2He abides with you and shall be 3bin you.

18 1I will not leave you as orphans; I am 2acoming to you.

19 Yet aa little while and the world beholds Me no longer, but you behold Me; because I 1blive, you also shall clive.

20 In that 1aday you will know that I am bin My Father, and you cin Me, and I din you.

c. The Triune God Making an Abode
with the Believers

21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he is the one who aloves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will bmanifest Myself to him.

22 Judas, not Iscariot, said to Him, Lord, and what has happened that You are to manifest Yourself to us and not to the world?

23 Jesus answered and said to him, If anyone aloves Me, he will bkeep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make an 1cabode with him.

24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the aword which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.

d. The Comforter's Reminding
and Life's Peace

25 These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you;

26 But the 1aComforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the 2Father will send in 3My name, He will bteach you call things and remind you of all the things which I have said to you.

27 aPeace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be btroubled, neither let it be afraid.

28 You have heard that I said to you, I am agoing away and I am 1coming to you. If you loved Me, you would rejoice because bI am 2going to the Father, for the Father is cgreater than I.

29 And now I have told you abefore it happens, so that when it happens you may believe.

30 I will no longer speak much with you, for the aruler of the world is coming, and in Me he has nothing;

31 But this is so that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father acommanded Me, so I do. Rise, let us go from here.
