16 A little while and ye shall not see me - When I am buried:
and again, a little while, and ye shall see me - When I am risen: because
I go to my Father - I die and rise again, in order to ascend to my Father.
19 Jesus said to them - Preventing their question.
20 Ye will weep and lament - When ye see me dead; but your sorrow will
be turned into joy - When ye see me risen.
22 Ye now therefore have sorrow - This gives us no manner of authority
to assert all believers must come into a state of darkness. They never
need lose either their peace, or love, or the witness that they are the
children of God. They never can lose these, but either through sin, or
ignorance, or vehement temptation, or bodily disorder.
