“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.”
I’m always a little suspicious of people who start out saying, “Now this is the truth…” But Jesus knew this would be hard for His disciples to believe. “It’s to your advantage I go away.” He had told them of their future suffering, and now He seems to say He won’t be around. But later they discover the advantage. In His physical body, He couldn’t be with them in Judea when He was in Galilee. But through His Holy Spirit, Jesus would be with His suffering people wherever they may be, and in whatever era they live, including the 21st century.
