Psalm 2:1 – 12, John 15:18 – 25, 2 Timothy 2:1 – 13
John 15:18–25 (NKJV)
18“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
20Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.
21But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
22If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin.
23He who hates Me hates My Father also.
24If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father.
25But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’
