John 17:17 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Sanctify them through thy truth:" (hagiason autous en te aletheia) "Sanctify them in and by means of the truth." Sanctify means to set apart or consecrate as sacred or holy, from profane use, to make sacred or holy and set apart for holy or sacred service; This sanctification is said to be by faith in Jesus Christ, Act 26:18; by the Word, Eph 5:26; 2Th 2:13.

2) "Thy word is truth." (ho logos ho sos aletheia estin) "Your word is truth," not only true but also truth in essence of existence, without error, Psa 119:160-161; Heb 4:12; 2Ti 3:16-17. His Word is truth, as a rule and guide for life and to salvation, Psa 119:151; Joh 18:37-38; Act 20:32.
