John 17

John 17 - Today is Day 17 of the 21 Day Gospel of John Challenge. Today read the 17th Chapter of the Gospel of John. #John17 #BGBG2

There are 3 Headers in 26 Verses in the 17th Chapter of the Gospel of John.

1. The High Priestly Prayer

Verses 1-12

In these verses Jesus prays out to God. A prayer to let others know about the True God! Jesus was praying an intercessory prayer too, on the behalf of.

2. The Disciples in the World

Verses 13-21

The prayer continues on in this section. Jesus was praying a prayer of protection of the disciples still in the world. Plus a prayer of truth, that they will go out and proclaim that truth.

That prayer went out to those who believed in Him.

3. Their Future Glory

Verses 22-26

The prayer continues on in this section too. Jesus asked for the glory given to Him, be given to those who believe. Jesus was saying He came to make God known. Plus, the love that God has be known too.


In closing, I am going to add these points from Matthew Henry.

Our Lord prayed as a man, and as the Mediator of his people; yet he spoke with majesty and authority, as one with and equal to the Father.

Christ prays for those that are his.

Christ does not pray that they might be rich and great in the world, but that they might be kept from sin, strengthened for their duty, and brought safe to heaven.

Christ next prayed for the disciples, that they might not only be kept from evil, but made good.

Our Lord especially prayed, that all believers might be as one body under one head, animated by one soul, by their union with Christ and the Father in him, through the Holy Spirit dwelling in them.

Christ, as one with the Father, claimed on behalf of all that had been given to him, and should in due time believe on him, that they should be brought to heaven; and that there the whole company of the redeemed might behold his glory as their beloved Friend and Brother, and therein find happiness.
