You will seek me, and just fas I said to the Jews, so now I also say to you, ‘Where I am going you cannot come.’ 34 gA new commandment hI give to you ithat you love one another: jjust as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 kBy this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
