“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.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
14:12 Greater works than these shall he do - So one apostle wrought miracles merely by his shadow, #Acts 5:15|; another by handkerchiefs carried from his body, #Acts 19:12|; and all spake with various tongues. But the converting one sinner is a greater work than all these. Because I go to my Father - To send you the Holy Ghost.
Joh 14:12 Greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. Those who believe shall have power given to do works, in some respects greater; not greater miracles, but to effect greater moral and spiritual revolutions. At the time of his death, as far as we know, he had only about five hundred disciples (1Co 15:6), but he "went to his Father" and "shed forth the things seen and heard" on Pentecost (Ac 2:33), and the eleven apostles converted three thousand in a single day (Ac 2:41).
