John 17:1 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

THE LORD'S INTERCESSORY PRAYER V. 1-27 (verses 1-5 for His own glorification)

1) "These words spake Jesus," (tauta elalesen lesous) "These things Jesus spoke," a claim to inspiration, by John the writer, Joh 21:24; 1Jn 1:1-3.

2) "And lifted up his eyes to heaven," (kai eparas tous ophtalmous autou eis ton ouranon) "And he lifted up his eyes toward heaven," the most intimate form of address, from where He had come down, 2Co 8:9; Eph 4:9-10.

3) "And said, Father, the hour is come;" (eipen pater eleluthen he hora) "He (then) said, Father, the hour or appointed time has come," for my crucifixion and burial and my trust in you to raise me up, Joh 3:14-15; Joh 12:31. That you may be vindicated and glorified through me in my resurrection, Joh 2:22-23.

4) "Glorify thy Son," (doksason sou ton huion) "Glorify your Son," who has been on your earthly mission for a season, Joh 1:14; Joh 3:16-17; Gal 4:4-5. Raise thy Son up in glory, which the Father did, Act 2:24. It involved His death, burial, and resurrection, and ascension to His throne of present mediation, Heb 7:25; 1Jn 2:1-2.

5) "That thy Son also may glorify thee:" (hin ho huios doksase se) "In order that the Son may glorify you," or cause you to appear to be glorious; He came to do the Father's will, and did it unto the end, Joh 6:38; Joh 3:15; Joh 4:10; Rom 8:11.

In Joh 17:1-5 Jesus prays that the Father may glorify Him; In Joh 17:6-19 He prayed that the Father might glorify His disciples, as a church, and in Joh 17:20-26 He prayed that the Father might glorify those who believed on Him through the ministry of the church.
