greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also
persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
JOH 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's
sake, because they know not him that sent me.
JOH 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin:
but now they have no cloak for their sin.

JOH 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man
did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me
