Jesus revealed to his disciples that in a little while they would no longer see him, but then in a little while they would see him. They were confused about his statement, “I am going to the Father.” Jesus informed the disciples that they would weep while the world would rejoice, but their grief would turn to lasting joy that no one could take from them. Since Jesus came from his Father to the world, he would now go back to his Father from the world. Then, Jesus revealed that there would be a time when they would be scattered. Yet, the Father would not leave him alone. So, Jesus told the disciples that he had revealed these things to them so that they could have peace. They were to be courageous because he is the one who overcomes the world!
