Telling It Like It Is
The Scripture reading is from John 15:12-16:1 and because of a recording glitch the Scriptures are not recorded as they were read. Jesus gets incredibly honest in these verses with us and his disciples. He is telling us that if we genuinely follow Jesus we can expect persecution and the will hate us. Jesus explains why we will be persecuted and how he will help us deal with this reality. “The Power for Mission” is part of our “The Last Teaching of Jesus” series.
