Presentation

Look at John 14 to 17

The atmosphere is charged and emotions run high in the upper chamber. Jesus spends one last evening with his disciples; it is the Passover; it was the day before he died. He knows where he is going and he realizes that he will soon be separated from them. That’s why he is so keen to surround them with all the love of his heart to prepare them for what has been going on for all eternity.

Like us, these early disciples often struggled to understand all the ups and downs of the situation. Jesus is very gentle and patient with them. He is truly the good Shepherd, the Servant who stoops to wash the feet of his own.

"Let not your heart be troubled ... I no longer call you servants ... but I have called you friends ... I am going to prepare a place for you ..."

In these poignant chapters, the heart of Christ is revealed and unites with those close to him. It is also for the benefit of "those who will believe by their testimony."

What is the rich relationship between Christ and the believer? What is the role of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter? What is the Christian's mission in this world? ... For the greater good of his reader, the author explains and applies the words of this wonderful "farewell speech" and of this great "priestly" prayer.
