bring forth _________ fruit. Now ye are clean through the ____________ which I have spoken unto you. _______________ in me and I in you. As the branch _________ bear fruit of itself, except it _________ in the vine;
no more can ye, except ye ___________ in me. _____ _____ the vine, ye are the ____________ : He that ________________ in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much _____________ : for without __________ 
ye can  do nothing. If a man ________ ____  in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather
them, and cast them into the ___________ , and they are burned. If ye ___________ in me, and my ____________
abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be ___________ unto you. Herein is my ______________ glorified,
that ye bear much _____________ ; so shall ye be my _____________ . As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved
you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall ______________ in my love; even as I have _____________ my ______________ commandments, and ______________ in his love. These things have I spoken
unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your ___________ might be full. This is my commandment, that ye _____________ one another, ________ I have loved you. Greater ___________ hath no man than this, that a man lay down his ____________ for his friends. Ye are my  _________, if ye _________ whatsoever I command you.
Henceforth I call you not ___________; for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you __________; for all things that I have heard of my ___________ I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me,
but I have ____________ you, and ____________ you, that ye should go and bring forth ____________ , and
that your fruit should remain: that ____________ ye shall ask of the Father in my ____________ , he may give it you.
These things I command you, that ye _________ one another. If the  ________ hate you, ye know that it _________ 
me before it hated you. If ye were of the __________ , the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the
world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world _______________ you. Remember the
__________ that I said unto you, The servant is no greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also
_______________ you; if they have ___________ my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they
do unto you for my ___________ sake, because they know not ______ that sent me. If I had not come and spoken
unto them, they had not had sin; but now they have no __________ for their sin. He that hateth ______ hateth my ___________ also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but
now have they both __________ and ____________ both _______ and my ______________ . But this cometh
to pass, that the ____________ might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a ___________ .
But when the ____________ is come, whom I will send unto _________ from the Father, even the Spirit of truth,
