Jesus warns his disciples of his departure, his seeming defeat, and his delay in coming back. When is he going to come back? How long will he be gone? And what will happen to us? How will we live in this world with the evil one in it and Jesus departed? Jesus reassures his disciples that though he is gone, we are not alone and helpless; Jesus will send the Spirit to live in us, to guide and empower us, and to reassure and remind us of all we need to know.
