John 12:49,50

  1. For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment—what to say and what to speak.
  2. And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has told me.
  • “As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me.” (John 6:57)

John 14:23–26

  1. Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
  2. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.
  3. “These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you.
  4. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
