John 14.30

John 14.30

 

112

 

Later, after Judas has left, Jesus says that the time is short, “for the Ruler of the World is coming.”  Jesus adds that the Ruler “has nothing on me,” but Jesus does what he does “so that the World may know that I love the Father and do what the Father has commanded me” (John 14.30-31).  A duplicate of this passage occurs two chapters later, with slightly different emphases [see 16.7-11].
