    Jesus at this time was aware of his fate ,the thing he would have to go through, yet he also knew truth and he comforted his disciples and today he comforted us, John 16:33, Glory to God in the Highest; we will overcome in him who has already won the victory for us.

    I believe that this chapter is mainly about God will bring you peace no matter what you've done. Just repent you know Jesus is alive and in the hearts of people all across the world.
