Part 13: Jesus’ Final Prayer – Part 1
John 17:1-5: Jesus said these things. Then, raising his eyes in prayer, he said: Father, it’s time. Display the bright splendour of your Son So the Son in turn may show your bright splendour. You put him in charge of everything human so he might give real and eternal life to all in his charge. And this is the real and eternal life: That they know you, the one and only true God, And Jesus Christ, whom you sent. I glorified you on earth by completing down to the last detail what you assigned me to do. And now, Father, glorify me with your very own splendour, the very splendour I had in your presence before there was a world.
We now look together at Jesus’ final prayer. This prayer is probably the pinnacle of
revelation in John’s gospel. Here we see Jesus’ very words, revealing an
unparalleled intimacy with His Father. Firstly, Jesus prays for Himself, then for His twelve disciples and then finally for all disciples of all generations to follow, the church. Today we are looking at Jesus’ prayer for himself.
