we should be careful of such — its likely an indicator that John the gospel writer felt a need to explain Jesus.
But what does John say?
There will be the death and then the resurrection. And the trauma following tehd eath will be like the birth pangs of a new birth and the resurrection will be like taht birth.
In the resurrection the disciples will be able to ask the father for anything in his name and it will be given. Indeed Christ encourages such asking so your joy may be complete.
An interesting phrase that. It was used before:
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete. (John 15:10-11)
It will reappear in John 17:13 and in the Johannine letters 1 and 2.
I cannot bear witness to such a faith as this. It has not been fulfilled in my life and experience. Based upon what others here have said — it is not true of anyone else’s here either — though some may have found other consolations.
