“But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.”
King James Version (KJV)
15:21 All these things will they do to you, because they know not him that sent me - And in all ages and nations they who know not God will, for this cause, hate and persecute those that do.
Joh 15:21 For my name's sake. That name, so sweet to the saved, is a hateful thing to his enemies. Jewish persecutors bade Christians to teach no more "in the name" (Ac 4:18 5:40); Gentile rulers bade them blaspheme "the name" or die.
