18 / John 15:18-27 / Read

  • What is “the world” as Jesus describes it in this passage?

  • What does Jesus mean when he tells his followers that they will be hated by the world? If you are a follower of Jesus, how does that make you feel? What might it look like for you to be hated because of your faith in him?

  • What does Jesus say about himself in vv. 22-25? Why is this significant? Do you believe what he says about himself?

  • In light of the challenge, opposition and persecution Jesus promised his followers, how do you think they took his command in vv. 27 to testify about him anyway? If you are a follower of Jesus today, how does his command land with you? How is he leading you to testify about him today?
