2nd Sunday in June

John 14:1-11

"Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's
house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I
go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And you
know the way where I am going."

Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the
way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes
to the Father, but through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father
also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him."

Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us." Jesus said
to him, "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip?
He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how do you say, 'Show us the Father'?

"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words
that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in
Me does His works. Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; otherwise
believe on account of the works themselves." John 14:1-11 (NAS)


In God's house there are many dwelling places. Jesus is going to His Father's house
to do what?

According to Jesus, if you have seen Jesus, you have seen Whom?

Easy-to-Read Version:

Jesus said, "Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God. And trust in me. There
are many rooms in my Father's house. I would not tell you this if it were not true.
I am going there to prepare a place for you. After I go and prepare a place for
you, I will come back. Then I will take you with me, so that you can be where I
am. You know the way to the place where I am going."

Thomas said, "Lord, we don't know where you are going. So how can we know the way?"
Jesus answered, "I am the way. I am the truth and the life. The only way to the
Father is through me. If you really knew me, then you would know my Father too.
But now you know the Father. You have seen him."

Philip said to Jesus, "Lord, show us the Father. That is all we need." Jesus answered,
"Philip, I have been with you for a long time. So you should know me. The person
that has seen me has seen the Father too. So why do you say, 'Show us the Father'?

"Do you truly believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The things
I have told you don't come from me. The Father lives in me, and he is doing his
own work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me.
Or believe because of the miracles I have done." John 14:1-11 (ERV)
