John 14:15

Teaching on the Holy Spirit

14:15 “If you love me, you will obey 1  my commandments. 2 

John 14:21

14:21 The person who has my commandments and obeys 3  them is the one who loves me. 4  The one 5  who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will reveal 6  myself to him.”

1 tn Or “will keep.”

2 sn Jesus’ statement If you love me, you will obey my commandments provides the transition between the promises of answered prayer which Jesus makes to his disciples in vv. 13-14 and the promise of the Holy Spirit which is introduced in v. 16. Obedience is the proof of genuine love.

3 tn Or “keeps.”

4 tn Grk “obeys them, that one is the one who loves me.”

5 tn Grk “And the one.” Here the conjunction καί (kai) has not been translated to improve the English style.

6 tn Or “will disclose.”
