Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Christ comforteth his Disciples with the hope of heauen: 6 professeth himselfe the Way, the Trueth, and the Life, and one with the Father: 13 Assureth their praiers in his Name to be effectuall: 15 Requesteth loue and obedience, 16 promiseth the holy Ghost the comforter, 27 and leaueth his peace with them.
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.13
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.18
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.
