John 13.31-14.11 – Papa is in me, and I am in her

(31) As he watched Judas walk away, Jesus took a deep breath and said “Now it begins: The full unveiling of who I am, and in me, who Papa is. (32) I have revealed Papa, and she will now reveal me.

(33) Kid brothers, it is almost time for me to go somewhere you cannot follow. I have a job to do. (34) You have a job too: Give to one another the love I have given you. (35) This love is what will identify you as my apprentices.

(36) But Peter wouldn’t let it go: “Master, where are you going?” Jesus answered: “You cannot follow me now, but don’t worry, you will follow me soon enough.” (37) Peter said “Why not now? I will die for you!” (38) Jesus answers “Oh really? Listen to me, Pete: By the time the rooster crows 3 times tomorrow morning, you will deny 3 times that you even know me.”

(14.1) This troubled them greatly, so Jesus comforted them: “There is nothing to be worried about. Trust Papa. Trust me. (2) You know how a man will briefly leave his betrothed in order to build their new home on his father’s estate. That’s what I’m doing right now. (3) And like the groom, I will not be long. I will come back to get you. Look for me at first light on the third day.

I am with Papa; there is nothing in the way of our relationship. Once I’ve done what I need to do, you will be with Papa in that way too. (4) You know the way to where I’m going; the path runs straight through the grave. (5) Thomas, never one to hide his doubts, said “No we don’t. How can we know the WAY to where you’re going if we don’t even know WHERE you’re going?” (6) Jesus replied: “I am the Way to get where you’re going. I am the Truth for you to believe. My life is the Life you were always meant to live. I am the way to life with Papa. There is no other way.

(7) You know me. You have seen me with your own eyes. From now on, I say you DO know Papa and HAVE seen him. (8) Phillip said “Master, all we want is to see Papa. Show him to us.” (9) Jesus said “Three years together, Philip, and now you say you’ve never seen me? Dude, I know you’ve already seen Papa because I know you’ve seen me. (10) Don’t you get it? I am in Papa, and Papa is in me. The words I speak are Papa’s words. The works I do are Papa’s works. I don’t do it on my own. Papa who lives in me does it. (11) She is in me, and I am in her. If you can’t believe it just because I say so, then believe based on what you’ve seen her do through me.

She will do the same things through you too, as you live in trust. In fact, you will do even greater things, because I (and you in me) will be sitting at Papa’s right hand, at the helm of the universe. (13) You yourself will be part of the Triune decision-making. I will delight in doing what you ask, in order to reveal Papa’s heart even more. (14) All things are now yours.

    John 13:31-14:11
    King James Version (KJV)

    31Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

    32If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.

    33Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.

    34A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

    As has been shown by what I have posted, there is a big difference between what your bible says & what the best translatiion of the Bible says the King James Versiion

    35By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

    36Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

    37Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.

    38Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.

    John 14
    1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

    2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

    3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

    5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

    6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

    8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

    9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

    10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

    11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
