John 17:11 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "And now I am no more in the world," (kai ouketi eimi en to kosmo) "And no longer am I in the world," as this was His last day on earth before His death, the world order over which the devil is the ruler, (temporary) despot, Luk 4:6; 2Co 4:4. He had bidden farewell to the world, to witness no more, or to work no further miracle for the world.

2) "But these are in the world," (kai autoi en to kosmo eisin) "And yet they are (exist) in the world," in the midst of the world that lieth in darkness, or in that wicked one, 1Jn 5:19; to which they are to be sent to bear His Gospel, Mat 28:18-20; Mar 16:15; Act 1:8. To it they would be yet exposed.

3) "And I come to thee," (kago pros se erchomai) "And I come directly to you," of my own choosing, will, and accord, to pray for them whom He had chosen to be His witnesses, and whom He should so soon leave, Joh 15:16; Joh 15:26-27.

4) "Holy Father, keep through thine own name," (patera hagie tereson autous en to onomati sou) "Holy Father, guard (with an angel sentinel) them in your name," or by your authority, Divinely protect them, 1Pe 1:5; Preserve them in the faith and in their labors, Jud 1:24-25; Psa 34:7.

5) "Those whom thou hast given me," (ho dedokas moi) "The ones whom you have given to me," Joh 17:6; Joh 6:37; Joh 6:45.

6) "That they may be one, as we are." (hina hosin hen kathos hemeis) "In order that they may be (exist as) one, just as we do," one in unison and harmony, without conflict or division, in the "unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace," Eph 4:1-6; They could thereby be an effective witness to the world.
