His disciples said, “Ah, now you are speaking plainly and not using figurative speech!  Now we know that you know all things and do not need anyone to question you.  This is why we believe that you came from God.”  Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe?  Behold, the hour is coming – indeed, it has come – when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone.  Yet, I am not alone, for the Father is with me.  I have said these things to you that, in me, you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart: I have overcome the world.”  (John 16.29-33)
