They do not know who sent me (Jn 15:21-15:21)

“But they will do

All these things

To you

On account

Of my name.

Because they do not know

Him who sent me.”

ἀλλὰ ταῦτα πάντα ποιήσουσιν εἰς ὑμᾶς διὰ τὸ ὄνομά μου, ὅτι οὐκ οἴδασιν τὸν πέμψαντά με.

John uniquely indicated that Jesus said that the world would do all these things to them (ἀλλὰ ταῦτα πάντα ποιήσουσιν εἰς ὑμᾶς) on account of his name (διὰ τὸ ὄνομά μου), Jesus, because they did not know (ὅτι οὐκ οἴδασιν) the one who had sent Jesus (τὸν πέμψαντά με).  The world of the non-believing Jews and the gentiles would do all these things to his followers because they did not know the one who had sent Jesus, God, the Father.  Do you know God, the Father?
