John: Keep in mind that John 16 covers evets on the last night of Jesus’ life. Jesus is telling His disciples that soon He is going “to Him Who sent Me”. (v. 5) Jesus also knows that this news will create some grief among the disciples: what do we do now? So Jesus promises not to leave them comfortless and to send them another Counselor. This Counselor cannot come unless and until Jesus returns to His Father.
