Holy Scripture Reading, John 17: 1-3, (NASB, 1960)

February 4, 2017

“These things Jesus spoke; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee, even as Thou gavest Him authority over all mankind, that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He may give eternal life. And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent.” (John 17: 1-3)

  1. As I have said before, this whole chapter: John 17, is surely one of my favorites! One of the most powerful chapters of the Gospel of John!

    • “The completion of the work given by the Father to the Son is the ground of the glorifying by the Father. The work of the Son was to give eternal life to men. This life is the knowledge of God. The glory of the Son, resting upon His perfected work, issues therefore in the glory of the Father ; for to know God is to give Him honour.” (B.F. Westcott, chap. 17, 1-5 ; The Gospel According To St. John).
