John 17:5 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "And now, 0 Father, glorify thou me," (kai nun doksason me su pater) "And now and hereafter, Father you glorify me," restore me to that glory, glory state from which I came down, 2Co 8:9.

2) "With thine own self," (para seauto) ''Alongside or with yourself." in close comradeship with you, Joh 1:1. This indicates the character of glorification He sought, a restoration to His former estate with the Father, indicating one of joy and companionship.

3) "With the glory which I had with thee," (te dokse he eichion) “With the glory I had, held, or possessed with you.” One we enjoyed, sharing your throne, your estate, or your kingdom, from which I came down to earth, Php_2:6; Heb 1:1-3; Heb 1:10.

4) "Before the world was." (pro tou ton kosmon) ''Before or prior to the world," prior to the existence of the world. (einai para soi) "To be (exist) alongside or with you.'' In this statement He reflected His eternal existence, being, and Sonship, in the Godhead bodily, Col 2:9; Joh 1:14; Col 1:19.
