A few years ago Terry's dad gave us a Model A Ford. He told us we would inherit the car, but he wanted to give it to us early. His rational for the early gift was that we could enjoy it now and he could watch us enjoy it.
Please read John 16. Jesus is providing the disciples needed information to be used now and after He returned to the Father. The message from the Father, along with the Holy Spirit was an inheritance that Jesus provided the disciples and we too share in the inheritance of those gifts.
As a foundation for your NT study, please read Deut. 32:10-13. You'll recognize the Scripture passage from the desert series. How does honey from the rock as provided by God to the Israelites compare and contrast with the provision by Jesus to the disciples?

Gospel of John Bible Study Overview:
What was the purpose of John's Gospel account? You can discover John's Holy Spirit directed goal by first reading John 20:30.
Essentially John stated that he wished to bring readers to faith/belief that Jesus was the Christ and the Son of God. But what is faith and belief? It is more than an intellectual acceptance of the historic life of Jesus. Instead our faith and belief in Christ is to be transformational. We are to be transformed by the presence of Jesus our Savior and Creator in our lives and reject being controlled by the things the world values and the yearning of our appetites and shallow desires.
In the minds of many Jews and Gentiles, a carpenter from Nazareth seemed like an unlikely candidate for the role of Messiah. Then again many of our friends, family and neighbors share that same mindset today!
