“Greater loue hath no man then this, that a man lay downe his life for his friends.”
King James Version (KJV)
10. If ye keepe my Commandements, ye shal abide in my loue, euen as I haue kept my Fathers Commandements, and abide in his loue. 11. These things haue I spoken vnto you, that my ioy might remaine in you, and that your ioy might be full. 12. This is my Commaundement, that ye loue one another, as I haue loued you. 13. Greater loue hath no man then this, that a man lay downe his life for his friends. 14. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoeuer I command you. 15. Henceforth I call you not seruants, for the seruant knoweth not what his lord doth, but I haue called you friends: for all things that I haue heard of my Father, I haue made knowen vnto you. 16. Ye haue not chosen me, but I haue chosen you, and ordeined you, that you should goe and bring foorth fruit, and that your fruite should remaine: that whatsoeuer ye shall aske of the Father in my Name, he may giue it you.
