Α. Ταύτα εν παροιμίαις λελάληκα υμίν» έρχεται ώρα ότε ουκέτι εν παροιμίαις λαλήσω υμίν, αλλά παρρησία περί του πατρός αναγγελώ υμίν. 'Εν εκείνη τη ημέρα εν τω ονόματί μου αιτήσεσθε και ου λέγω υμίν ότι εγώ ερωτήσω τον πατέρα περί υμών: αυτός γάρ ο πατήρ φιλεί υμάς, ότι εμείς εμέ πεφιλήκατε, και πεπιστεύκατε ότι εγώ παρά του Θεού εξήλθον. Εξήλθον παρά του πατρός, και ελήλυθα εις τον κόσμον» πάλιν αφίημι τον κόσμον και πορεύομαι προς τον πατέρα. Λέγουσιν αυτη οι μαθηταί αυτού· 'Ιδε, νύν παρρησία λαλείς, και παροιμίαν ουδεμίαν λέγεις. Νύν οίδαμεν ότι οίδας πάντα, και ου χρείαν έχεις ένα τίς σε ερωτά: έν τούτω πιστεύομεν ότι από Θεού εξήλθες.

Β. Απεκρίθη Ιησούς: Εάν εγώ δοξάζω εμαυτόν, η δόξα μου ουδέν έστιν έστιν και πατήρ μου και δοξάζων με, δν υμείς λέγετε ότι Θεός υμών εστί. Και ουκ εγνώκατε αυτόν εγώ δε οίδα αυτόν και εάν είπω ότι ουκ οίδα αυτόν, έσομαι όμοιος υμών ψεύστης. 'Αλλ' οίδα αυτόν, και τον λόγον τηρώ.
