But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
The hatred that the world has for Christ’s disciples is for “my name’s sake”. It is because the believer 1.) is linked to Christ, 2.) has been separated from the word by Christ, and 3.) bears Christ’s name and likeness. The world is ignorant of God, as they do not know that the Father sent Jesus into the world to be their Saviour. But their ignorance is no excuse for rejecting the One who came to save them.
