"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love." John 15:9

Before Jesus left this world he gave specific encouragement and instructions to his disciples on what to expect and how to live after he had gone. These words still apply to his disciples today.

In this eight-session LifeGuide® Bible Study, trusted guides J. I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom lead you through a study of Jesus' farewell to his disciples in John 14-17 to help you discover what it means to abide in Christ during the time between Christ's departure and his second coming.
