John 16:16John 16:24

c. The Son to Be Born in Resurrection
as a Newborn Child
vv.16-24

16 aA little while and you no longer behold Me, and again a little while and you will bsee Me.

17 Some of His disciples then said to one another, What is this that He says to us, A little while and you do not behold Me, and again a little while and you will see Me; and, Because I am going to the Father?

18 Therefore they said, What is this that He says, A little while? We do not know what He is talking about.

19 Jesus knew that they wanted to ask Him and He said to them, Are you inquiring among yourselves concerning this, that I said, A little while and you do not behold Me, and again a little while and you will see Me?

20 Truly, truly, I say to you that you will aweep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into bjoy.

21 A woman, when she gives birth, has sorrow because her hour has come; but when she 1brings forth the 2little achild, she no longer remembers the affliction because of the joy that a man has been born into the world.

22 Therefore you also now have sorrow; but I will 1see you aagain and your heart will brejoice, and no one takes your joy away from you.

23 And in that aday you will ask Me nothing. Truly, truly, I say to you, 1Whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give to you.

24 Until now you have 1aasked for nothing in My name; ask and you shall receive, that your bjoy may be made full.
