Why does the spelling look unusual?
Let not your heart be troubled: yee beleeue in God, beleeue also in me.
In my Fathers house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would haue told you: I goe to prepare a place for you.
And if I goe and prepare a place for you, I will come againe, and receiue you vnto my selfe, that where I am, there ye may be also.
And whither I goe yee know, and the way ye know.
Thomas saith vnto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest: and how can we know the way?
Iesus saith vnto him, I am the Way, the Trueth, and the Life: no man commeth vnto the Father but by mee.
If ye had knowen me, ye should haue knowen my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and haue seene him.
Philip sayth vnto him, Lord, shew vs the Father, and it sufficeth vs.
Iesus saith vnto him, Haue I bin so long time with you, and yet hast thou not knowen me, Philip? he that hath seene me, hath seene the father, and how sayest thou then, Shew vs the father?
Beleeuest thou not that I am in the father, and the father in mee? The words that I speake vnto you, I speak not of my selfe: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doth the works.
Beleeue me that I am in the Father, and the Father in mee: or else beleeue me for the very workes sake.
Uerely, verely I say vnto you, he that beleeueth on me, the works that I doe, shall hee doe also, and greater workes then these shall he doe, because I goe vnto my Father.
And whatsoeuer ye shall aske in my Name, that will I doe, that the Father may be glorified in the Sonne.
If ye shall aske any thing in my Name, I will doe it.
¶ If ye loue me, keepe my commandements.
And I will pray the Father, and hee shall giue you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for euer,
Euen the Spirit of trueth, whom the world cannot receiue, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him, for hee dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
I wil not leaue you comfortlesse, I will come to you.
Yet a litle while, and the world seeth me no more: but ye see me, because I liue, ye shall liue also.
At that day ye shall know, that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
He that hath my commandements, and keepeth them, hee it is that loueth me: and he that loueth me shall be loued of my Father, and I will loue him, and will manifest my selfe to him.
Iudas saith vnto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thy selfe vnto vs, and not vnto the world?
Iesus answered, and saide vnto him, If a man loue mee, he will keepe my wordes: and my Father will loue him, and wee will come vnto him, and make our abode with him.
He that loueth mee not, keepeth not my sayings, and the word which you heare, is not mine, but the Fathers which sent mee.
These things haue I spoken vnto you, being yet present with you.
But the Comforter, which is the holy Ghost, whom the Father wil send in my name, he shal teach you al things, & bring al things to your remembrance, whatsoeuer I haue said vnto you.
Peace I leaue with you, my peace I giue vnto you, not as the world giueth, giue I vnto you: let not your heart bee troubled, neither let it bee afraid.
Ye haue heard how I saide vnto you, I goe away, and come againe vnto you. If ye loued mee, yee would reioyce, because I said, I go vnto the Father: for my Father is greater then I.
And now I haue told you before it come to passe, that when it is come to passe, ye might beleeue.
Heereafter I will not talke much with you: for the prince of this world commeth, and hath nothing in me.
But that the world may know that I loue the Father: and as the Father gaue me commandement, euen so I doe: Arise, let vs goe hence.

Philip was looking at Jesus with his naked eye,so he only saw Jesus flesh. The Spirit of God was within Jesus as it is in everyone. Jesus said you can do what I have done and even more. We need to sit still and listen to our Spirit which is God!

I was praying and I was told, " I am who I am, and I am within you. " Google led me here to only find the words of john 14 20. our love for that in which is a greater good the holy spirit from within us, guides us, aids us, and is who and what is and always will save us.

Jesus himself bieng 100 human and 100 God in flesh can not lie, and His promise of the heavenly places mansions is a reward of anyone who picks up His cross to follow him, jonh 14 2 is clear the house of God originates in heaven, the church is the body of Christ. Though it is reffered to the church in certain scriptures
Wingroe's John Chapter 14 comment on 7/25/2014, 2:08am...
it is very clear in verse 28 that the father is greater than jesus, so they are not equal.. meaning they are different individual father and son ..
Rev. Autrey's John Chapter 14 comment on 7/21/2014, 7:22am...
George, I agree with what you said about the Trinity, but let me add this. God is one entity, but he has three distinct personalities. These are the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Your personality is who you are. That is why each is called God. The Father is the way God directs his affairs. Jesus spoke of this when he said that the Father sent him. The Holy Spirit is the way God inspires us to believe in what he is doing as Jesus. Jesus spoke of this when he said in John 16 that the Holy Spirit will tell us about him. But in all cases, Jesus is the personality through whom God speaks to us. What I mean is, there is only one God, not three separate Gods. This is the most fundamental belief of our religion. It is called monotheism, the belief in one God. But self identity or personality in another matter. You can have as many self identities or pesonalities as you like and still be one person. Such is our God. That is why he is a Trinity. Please respond!

If I love Christ, I will do my best to obey Christ, and The Trinity will come and live with me. Praise Father, SON, Holy Ghost! Amen
