Acts 13: 44- 52

13:44Yet truly, on the following Sabbath, nearly the entire city came together to hear the Word of God.
13:45Then the Jews, seeing the crowds, were filled with envy, and they, blaspheming, contradicted the things that were being said by Paul.
13:46Then Paul and Barnabas said firmly: “It was necessary to speak the Word of God first to you. But because you reject it, and so judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.
13:47For so has the Lord instructed us: ‘I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, so that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’ ”
13:48Then the Gentiles, upon hearing this, were gladdened, and they were glorifying the Word of the Lord. And as many as believed were preordained to eternal life.
13:49Now the word of the Lord was disseminated throughout the entire region.
13:50But the Jews incited some devout and honest women, and the leaders of the city. And they stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas. And they drove them away from their parts.
13:51But they, shaking the dust from their feet against them, went on to Iconium.
13:52The disciples were likewise filled with gladness and with the Holy Spirit.

John 14: 7- 14

14:7If you had known me, certainly you would also have known my Father. And from now on, you shall know him, and you have seen him.”
14:8Philip said to him, “Lord, reveal the Father to us, and it is enough for us.”
14:9Jesus said to him: “Have I been with you for so long, and you have not known me? Philip, whoever sees me, also sees the Father. How can you say, ‘Reveal the Father to us?
14:10Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I am speaking to you, I do not speak from myself. But the Father abiding in me, he does these works.
14:11Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?
14:12Or else, believe because of these same works. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me shall also do the works that I do. And greater things than these shall he do, for I go to the Father.
14:13And whatever you shall ask the Father in my name, that I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14:14If you shall ask anything of me in my name, that I will do.
