There is no real break between the end of chapter 13 and beginning of chapter 14. Therefore continuing, while now including all the disciples, He charged them not to let their heart be troubled. He then answered Peter's original question by saying He was going to prepare a place for them. To Thomas' protest He answered that He Himself was "the way, the truth, and the life"; and to Philip's great exclamation, "Show us the Father, and it sufficeth us," He replied in words that need no comment, "He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father."
Still continuing, He told them that at His departure He would send them Another, who would disannul their orphanage by revealing Himself to them and bringing them into closer association with Him. It was on the basis of this assurance that He said to them, "Peace I leave with you." He carefully described the peace as "My peace." His peace was a heart untroubled and unfearful in spite of all the suffering and conflict ahead of Him. The secrets of that peace were His certainty as expressed in the words, first, "I go to the Father," and, second, "The prince of this world cometh, and he hath nothing in Me."
