1st Corinthians Chapter 12 & John Chapter 14
12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you
12:2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols,
even as ye were led.
12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the
Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus
is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God
which worketh all in all.
12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit
12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another
the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of
healing by the same Spirit;
12:10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to
another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to
another the interpretation of tongues:
12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing
to every man severally as he will.
12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members
of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be
Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to
drink into one Spirit.
12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.
12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the
body; is it therefore not of the body?
12:16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of
the body; is it therefore not of the body?
12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the
whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as
it hath pleased him.
12:19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
12:20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
12:21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor
again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
12:22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more
feeble, are necessary:
12:23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less
honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely
parts have more abundant comeliness.
12:24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body
together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members
should have the same care one for another.
12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or
one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily
prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings,
helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all
workers of miracles?
12:30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all
12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more
14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye
believe in God, believe also in me.
14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would
have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and
receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and
how can we know the way?
14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.
14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from
henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth
14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet
hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the
Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?
the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father
that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else
believe me for the very works' sake.
14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works
that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;
because I go unto my Father.
14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the
Father may be glorified in the Son.
14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because
it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth
with you, and shall be in you.
14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me:
because I live, ye shall live also.
14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me,
and I in you.
14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that
loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will
love him, and will manifest myself to him.
14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt
manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep
my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and
make our abode with him.
14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which
ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
14:25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will
send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to
your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world
giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it
14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto
you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the
Father: for my Father is greater than I.
14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is
come to pass, ye might believe.
14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this
world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the
Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
