Seven Big ‘Ifs” in John 14

by Victor Knowles

Victor-Knowles-300-240x300There are seven big ‘ifs’ in John 14, one of the most familiar and loved chapters in the Bible.

Jesus said:

  1. If it were not so, I would have told you (that in my Father’s house are many mansions) (v. 1).
  2. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself, that where I am, there you may be also (v.3).
  3. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also (v.7).
  4. If you ask anything in my name, I will do it (v.14).
  5. If you love me, keep my commandments (v.15).
  6. If anyone loves me, he will keep my word (v.23).
  7. If you loved me, you would rejoice because I said, “I am going to the Father” (v.28).

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
