John 15:1-27, NLT
Jesus, the True Vine
1“I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener.
5“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
9“I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.
The World’s Hatred
18“If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first.
26“But I will send you the Advocate*15:26 Or Comforter, or Encourager, or Counselor. Greek reads Paraclete.—the Spirit of truth. He will come to you from the Father and will testify all about me.
