I did not tell you this from the beginning, because I was with you. Now I am going to the one who sent me, and not one of you asks me, “Where are you going?” However, because I told you this, grief has filled your hearts. However, I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. However, if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will convict the world about sin and righteousness and condemnation: sin, because they do not believe in me; righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me; condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned. “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. However, when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason, I told you that he would take from what is mine and declare it to you.”
