Jesus' Parting Prayer for Us - John 17:1-26
Written by John Tsang

The beautiful prayer offered to the

Father by Jesus in John 17 is sometimes referred to as the High Priestly Prayer. In it, Jesus prayed for the glorification of the Father (17:1-5), protection for the disciples (17:6-19), and oneness for all future believers (17:20-26).

 

 

First, Jesus wanted to glorify the Father through what was about to take place, namely, the cross. Jesus wanted the Father to make known the beauty, goodness, magnificence, and authority of the cross even though in the eyes of humanity, it was a symbol of shame, violence, and cruelty. It is through the cross that God will grant eternal life to whom the Father has given. And this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ (17:3).

I am the Vine, You are the Branches - John 15:1-17

What is your favourite thing about vineyards? Is it the spacious rolling hills, the seemingly endless rows of grape vines, or the wine tasting tours? Using the very familiar and common metaphor of a vineyard, Jesus painted an intimate picture of connectedness and friendship with his disciples. Jesus urged the remaining disciples to remain close to Him for they are about to experience hardship and circumstances unlike anything that they have encountered before.

 


I am the vine, you are the branches. Remain in me and I will remain in you. Apart from me you cannot bear fruit.

Relationships: Love, Obedience, and the Trinity - John 14:15-31

In John 14, we come across the beautiful doctrine of the Trinity; God in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In response to the disciples’ request to show them the Father, Jesus explained the interconnectedness of the Father, Himself, and Holy Spirit. The deepest truth about who God is not His qualities but the uniqueness of His triune nature, relationships (John McMurray). At the center of the divine Trinity is the eternal loving relationship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Just stop and think, the Triune God invites us into that eternal relationship!
