John 14:15

Teaching on the Holy Spirit

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

John 14:21

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

tn Or “will keep.”

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.

tn Or “keeps.”

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

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

tn Or “will disclose.”
