John 17:24 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Father, I will that they also," (pater thelo hina kakeinoi) "Father I will or earnestly desire in order that those also;" He could now say "I will," while we are to say, "thy will," Joh 7:17; Php_2:5-7; Mat 6:33; 1Co 10:31.

2) "Whom thou hast given me," (ho dedokas moi) "Whom you have given to me," both as believers and the church or my bride, Rev 19:5-9; Eph 5:25.

3) "Be with me where I am;" (hopou eimi ego osin me emou) "May be with me where I am," where I am going, in glory, in your estate, Joh 14:1-3. This is the height, the apex, the consummate goal of Divine blessedness in Christ.

4) "That they may behold my glory," (hina theorosin ten doksan ten emen) "in order that they may observe my glory," as it is restored to me, when I return to you, Joh 17:4-5; 1Th 4:17. The glory of Christ, even now shared with His disciples, through His church, and through suffering, 2Ti 2:12; Rev 3:21.

5) "Which thou hast given me:" (hen dedokas moi) "Which you have given to me," In my birth, Joh 1:14; In my baptism, Mat 3:16-17; In my transfiguration, Mat 17:1-5; And in my resurrection body, as I shall appear before you, 1Co 15:43; Luk 24:26.

6) "For thou lovest me," (hoti egapesas me) "Because you did love me;" He who "loved the world," surely first loved His Son, Joh 3:16; Joh 3:35; Joh 5:20; Mat 3:17.

7) "Before the foundation of the world." (pro kataboles kosmou) "Before (prior to) the foundation of the present world order," Rom 5:8-11; 2Co 5:18-19; 1Pe 1:18-21; Act 2:22-24.
