They have hated the Father and me (Jn 15:24-15:24)

“If I had not done

Among them

The works

That no one else did,

They would not have sin.

But now they have seen

And hated

Both me

And my Father.”

εἰ τὰ ἔργα μὴ ἐποίησα ἐν αὐτοῖς ἃ οὐδεὶς ἄλλος ἐποίησεν, ἁμαρτίαν οὐκ εἴχοσαν· νῦν δὲ καὶ ἑωράκασιν καὶ μεμισήκασιν καὶ ἐμὲ καὶ τὸν Πατέρα μου.

John uniquely indicated that Jesus said that if he had not done all these works among them (εἰ τὰ ἔργα μὴ ἐποίησα ἐν αὐτοῖς) that no one else had ever done (ἃ οὐδεὶς ἄλλος ἐποίησεν), they would not be sinners (ἁμαρτίαν οὐκ εἴχοσαν).  However, now they have seen (νῦν δὲ καὶ ἑωράκασιν) these works and hated (καὶ μεμισήκασιν) both him (καὶ ἐμὲ) and his Father (καὶ τὸν Πατέρα μου).  Jesus once again said that there could be no more excuses.  He had done amazing works that no one else ever did among them.  Despite seeing all this, they hated both he and God, the Father.  This was inexcusable.  Have you run out of excuses for not loving God?
