John 7:7; 1 John 3:13; John 15:23–24

The world cannot hate you, but xit hates me because I testify about it that yits works are evil.

13 Do not be surprised, brothers,1 zthat the world hates you.

23 nWhoever hates me hates my Father also. 24 oIf I had not done among them the works that no one else did, mthey would not be guilty of sin, but now they have pseen and hated both me and my Father.
