Nor does He directly mention the Spirit. After having preached to the disciples about bearing the cross, the Lord exhibited to them those consolations, by relying on which they would be enabled to persevere. "Ye know the grace of the Lord Jesus, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich.". Открыл... и открою. 14;) third, his parting address of prediction, warning, and consolation, (chap. This prayer for the church will yet be fully answered; and he who loves the church and the world cannot but cast his eyes onward to that time when all believers shall be one; when contentions, bigotry, strife, and anger shall cease; and when, in perpetual union and love, Christians shall show forth the power and purity of that holy gospel with which the Saviour came to bless mankind. They enter into the embrace of God’s eternal purpose to glorify all who believe in Jesus. After Jesus finished saying this. No composition can be found anywhere so fitted to sustain the soul in trial or to support it in death. The seed of the new world must be sown in Death, that thence Life may spring up” [Olshausen]. And I in them—As the life-spring of their immortal existence, the well-spring of their eternal love, the day-spring of their eternal glory. made known. "These words spake Jesus, and lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said. 26. This no doubt involves alike the death and the exaltation of Jesus, but it is the inner character of the hour, rather than its outward accompaniments, that is mainly referred to in the words ‘The hour is come.’. In part this had been received, but in part only. These things spake Jesus, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said. They are, first, the colloquy and events during the supper, (chap. In prayer believers draw near to God, not merely when necessity drives them, but under the promptings of filial love, and just because "it is good for them to draw near to God." I in them - By my doctrines and the influences of my Spirit. âOur Father,â in the prayer taught to the disciples, and âHoly Fatherâ and âRighteous Fatherâ in John 17:11; John 17:25. AS THE HIGHEST OBJECT FOR REVELATION. That thy Son also may glorify thee. It is offered in the same place, while the disciples stand around, and in the same frame of mind as that in which Jesus had just spoken; so that, when we read of His ‘lifting up His eyes to heaven,’ we must think of them as full alike of holy devotion and of the consciousness of completed victory. John 20:17, “I ascend unto My Father and your Father;” with which comp. Will declare it; will more fully make thee known to them, to the increase of their love, union, and blessedness. “That the love,” &c. God’s character is the reformatory force. And lest this should seem an overstrained exposition of the mind of Christ in John 17:22, the words which follow seem almost to go beyond it - "I in them, and thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that Thou hast sent Me, and hast loved them, as Thou hast loved Me:" and the prayer dies away with the expression of the means He had taken and should continue to take, in order "that the love wherewith Thou hast loved Me (says He) may be in them, and I in them." There is nothing here which is not in perfect accord with the normal development of Jesus" life. Never does Jesus say in prayer, 'Our Father,' though He directs His disciples to do it; but always "Father," and once, during His Agony, "My Father:" thus severing Himself as Man from all other men, as the "Separate from sinners," though "Bone of our bone, and Flesh of our flesh. 2 In My Fatherâs house are many  mansions; if it were not so,  I would have told you. II. Да любовь. “FÃ¼r das Auge des Geistes is der freie Himmel Ã¼berall.” LÃ¼cke. Jesus! from John 13:31 to John 16:33. heaven = the heaven (singular) See on Matthew 6:9, Matthew 6:10. hour. His wisdom. 1.These words spake Jesus. What greater glory could there be than the glory revealed when a holy but merciful God surrenders His own Son to die in awful suffering, a suffering in which He Himself will take part, for undeserving and sinful men, in order to finally redeem them and bring them with Him into His glory?. John 12:23 et seq.) Thus, too, shall the end of all be attained, the glorifying of Him ‘of whom and through whom and to whom are all things.’, will make thy name known to them, by giving them, by means of the Holy Ghost, a perfect knowledge. Home; Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary; John; Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary John 16 . “I in them.” Catch those two words. He looked towards heaven, not as if Godâs presence were confined to heaven, for He filleth also the earth, (Jeremiah 23:24,) but because it is there chiefly that his majesty is displayed. This love is ancient in its date. The pathos and the sorrow are soon to deepen into the immediate agonies of Gethsemane and the crucifixion; the triumphal tone is sustained by a prophetic recognition of the victory in the more distant future. 11 and John 12:27. —Hitherto his glance had been horizontally directed upon his listening apostles; but now our Evangelist beholds him turn his eye upward, and recognizes that his spirit is with God. The public teaching of Jesus has â¦ Continue reading "Commentary on John 13:1-17" It was the hour of unbearable suffering. Though he speaks of the apostles, we ought to draw from this a general exhortation, to study to make constant progress, and not to think that we have run so well that we have not still a long journey before us, so long as we are surrounded by the flesh. Psalm 121:1; Psalm 123:1; Ezekiel 33:25; Daniel 4:34; John 11:41). They can be likened to the words spoken by the condemned man before he walks out to execution. Future active of γνωριζω gnōrizō the perpetual mission of Christ through the Spirit (John 16:12, John 16:25; Matthew 28:20) as he himself has done heretofore (John 17:6). Thus the third section of the prayer closes, its main burden having been that the whole Church of God, believers of every age and country, may be so brought to and kept in the unity of the Father and the Son that the glory of the Son in the Father may be theirs. xiii., p. 5, etc. You need not go abroad to find the Lord Jesus Christ. 20-26). A very fit person Christ was to make this declaration, since he was with him from all eternity, and was in his bosom; the Father did all in him, and his name is in him; and he is the faithful witness; nor is anything of God to be known savingly, but in and through Christ; the apostles are here particularly meant, though the same is true with respect to all that are given to Christ, who are his children and brethren, to whom he also declares the name of God: and will declare it; more fully to them after his resurrection, during his forty days' stay with them, and upon his ascension, when he poured down his Spirit in such a plentiful and extraordinary manner upon them; and will declare it to others besides them in the Gentile world; and still more in the latter day glory, and to all believers more and more: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them; that is, that a sense of that love with which God loves his Son, as Mediator, might be in them and abide in them, and which is the rather mentioned because they are loved by the Father with the same love, and share all the blessed consequences of it, the knowledge and sense of which they come at, through Christ's declaring his Father's name unto them; and which they will have a greater sense of, and will be swallowed up in it in heaven to all eternity: and I in them; dwelling in them, taking up his residence in them; not only by his Spirit and grace here, but by his glorious presence with them hereafter; when they shall be brought to his Father's house, behold his glory, and be for ever with him. “The love wherewith Thou hast loved Me.”. He had just expressed His desire "that the world may know that Thou lovedst them as Thou lovedst Me" (John 17:23). This eternal love of the Father, resting first on Christ, is by His Spirit imparted to and takes up its permanent abode in all that believe in Him; and "He abiding in them, and they in Him" (John 15:5), they are "one Spirit." I. But did not the Father, you will say, know that? “I have declared to them Thy name.” The name was the Jewish formulary for God; His perfections, glory, grace. (26) And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it.—The Greek word here rendered “declared” is of the same root as the verb rendered “known” in the previous verse. have declared = declared: i.e. and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them. the blessedness for all of this description and character, to have a consciousness of being interested in Christ's prayer; from being sent forth to the ministry from Christ's ordination: Holy Father! John 17:26 - and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.' Jesus is here conscious that He is about to face a battle of huge dimensions which will result in great glory. It is a significant fact that the two of the five petitions of this prayer are for Christian unity. Through Him they and all believers receive the spirit of adoption, and cry, as He cried, âAbba, Father.â For the thought of the hour, comp. John 2:4; John 7:6; John 7:8; John 7:30; John 8:20; John 12:23; John 12:27-28; John 12:31-32; John 13:1; John 13:31). It is with the same view that the hands are lifted up in prayer; for men, being by nature indolent and slow, and drawn downwards by their earthly disposition, need such excitements, or I should rather say, chariots, to raise them to heaven. âI,â âThou,â âTheeâMe,â âon earth,â âwith Thine own self.â (Comp. Genesis 11:8). John 18:1, John 18:2.—A. Unto them thy name. O yes, and Jesus knew that He knew it. But that glory must come through a cross (John 12:23-25 with 32-33) before He receives the crown. âThese words are exactly parallel with the commencement of the previous verse. What Jesus prays for is, that the Father would now withdraw the veil which had hitherto obscured to some, and concealed from others, the ‘glory’ belonging to the Son’s unity of relation to the Father, in order that that ‘glory’ of the Father Himself, which is the end of all existence, and which can be seen only in the Son, may thus shine forth in the sight of His creatures without any shadow to dim its brightness. In the former the reader sees a strict morality which he fears he shall never be able to perform: in this, he sees all things are possible to him who believes; for that very God who made him shall dwell in his heart, and enable him to do all that He pleases to employ him in. He means, therefore, that he taught the apostles efficaciously. The Spirit’s work is always at the Father’s behest, and subject to the Father’s will, and is directed towards glorifying the Father and the Son and fulfilling Their purpose. The Prayer naturally divides itself into thee parts: First, What relates to the Son Himself, who offered the prayer (John 17:1-5); secondly, what had reference more immediately to those Eleven disciples in whose hearing the prayer was uttered (John 17:6-19); thirdly, what belongs to all who should believe on Him through their word, to the end of the world (John 17:20-24); with two concluding verses, simply breathing out His soul in a survey, at once dark and bright, of the whole past results of His mission. It is indeed eternal life, and it is thy office-character, to give it, to know Jehovah, the only true God ; Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; and Jesus Christ, whom Jehovah hath sent. But the idea, "that Thy Son also may glorify Thee," could not remain in this generality. John 17:23.) keep through thine own Name, those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one as we are! On the meaning of ‘glorify’ compare what has been said at chap. Neither pray I for these alone - This prayer extends itself through all ages, and takes in every soul that believes in the Lord Jesus. Christ discharged the office of Teacher, but, in order to make known the Father, he employed the secret revelation of the Spirit, and not the sound of his voice alone. Thus John joins the apostle Paul in the superlative importance attributed to being "in Christ." (4) How fixed are the banks within which the waters of "eternal life" flow to men: "This is life eternal, to know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent." He undoubtedly did not have his pencil in hand; but the memory is proportionate to the attention and the attention to the interest; now must not that of John have been excited to the highest degree? The prayer is not that the Father’s love may be set upon them, or move towards them, but be “in” them. 17:20-26 Three Requests Jesus Prayed for You. (12) Do believers realize the length and breadth of that saying of Jesus, "The glory which Thou hast given Me I have given them, that they may be one even as We are one"? Only when the eyes are opened to behold the loveliness of God will the heart go out towards God, who is so desirable an object for the affections.
