16:8  And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

16:12  I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

I have yet

Christ's pre-authentication of the New Testament:

(1) he expressly declared that He would leave "many things" unrevealed (John 16:12).

(2) He promised that this revelation should be completed ("all things") after the Spirit should come, and that such additional revelation should include new prophecies (Joh 16:)).

(3) He chose certain persons to receive such additional revelations, and to be His witnesses to them Matthew 28:19; John 15:27; 16:13; Acts 1:8; Acts 9:15-17.

(4) he gave to their words when speaking for Him in the Spirit precisely the same authority as His own Matthew 10:14,15; Luke 10:16; John 13:20; 17:20 see e.g. 1 Corinthians 14:37 and "Inspiration," ; Exodus 4:15; Revelation 22:19.

16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

of himself

from himself. Cf. next clause.

16:20  Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.


kosmos = mankind. (See Scofield "Matthew 4:8") .

16:21  A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.


kosmos = mankind. (See Scofield "Matthew 4:8") .

16:28  I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.


kosmos = mankind. (See Scofield "Matthew 4:8") .

16:33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


kosmos = world-system. John 17:14,16; 7:7. (See Scofield "Revelation 13:8") .
