John 16

John 16, Jesus continues this chapter preparing his disciples for his departure.  He foretells his death and resurrection and the fact that their future in The Way will be one of suffering and physical death.

Jesus ends the chapter with this (John 16:33) I have said this to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you face persecution. But take courage; I have conquered the world!” (NRSV)  This was appropriate for the disciples as they were about to see Jesus death and the sorrow that he said that they would have.  It is also appropriate for us as we have the joy of the resurrection and the life that we have through the power of the resurrection.

Have a great day,
Doug.
