Officers Sent to Arrest Jesus
The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things concerning Him, and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take Him.
Then Jesus said to them, m "I shall be with you a little while longer, and then I n go to Him who sent Me.
"You o will seek Me and not find Me, and where I am you p cannot come."
Then the Jews said among themselves, "Where does He intend to go that we shall not find Him? Does He intend to go to q the Dispersion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks?
"What is this thing that He said, 'You will seek Me and not find Me, and where I am you cannot come'?"

Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, 'Where I am going, you cannot come,' so now I say to you.
So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven.
Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.
1 Peter 3:22
Who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.
With their flocks and herds They shall go to seek the LORD, But they will not find Him; He has withdrawn Himself from them.
For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.
1 Corinthians 15:50
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.
But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
