John 15:1-16:4 is the heart of Jesus’ last conversation with His disciples. First we have Jesus’ promise: “Abide in Me and you will bear much fruit” (John 15:1-11). Then Jesus’ command: “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12-17). Finally, Jesus’ warning: “in the world you will face persecution” (15:18-16:4).
