There is great revelation and many truths in this passage. Jesus was talking plainly to them (16:29). It was straight up this time.
 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
This next verse you have heard before in 10:38.
 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.
Verse 12 is a key verse for us,
 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
Jesus tells them plainly that He is going to the Father-heaven! He introduces His main objective, which He explains in verse 15 and on. His going ushered in the Holy Spirit’s coming!
Verses 13-14 have been misconstrued and abused for centuries. What does Jesus mean by “In My name?” I think, first, that it implies a relationship-the Spirit must be present in order to have power. Secondly, we must be connected-walking with Him and not against Him. Thirdly, we must must wait for the invitation to join Him in His work-communication. All of these requirements take the human equation out of it. It’s all Him and about Him!
