Have you faced opposition for an idea you offered, a decision you made, or a position you took? In this text, Jesus is preparing the disciples for how they will live when He goes, and specifically, how they will face opposition. There are three simple points in this text:
The world still hates Jesus.
The world still hates the Church.
The world still needs Jesus and so do we.
