John 17:6–19 – [6] “I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. [7] Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. [8] For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. [9] I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. [10] All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. [11] And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. [12] While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. [13] But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. [14] I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. [15] I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. [16] They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. [17] Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. [18] As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. [19] And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. (ESV)



John 17 – The priestly prayer

The greatest of prayers (Jesus High Priestly Prayer)

  1. For himself – vv. 1-5
  2. For His disciples – vv. 6-19
  3. For future believers – 20-26


Jesus prays for His disciples (notice… longer than His prayer for Himself.  The love He has for His disciples.


His concern for the disciples, but confident in His Father – vv. 6-10


You gave them to me out of the world


What a tremendous truth… we are His.

From the foundation of the world…  WE ARE HIS.  WE HAVE BEEN HIS.


They believed your Word


I am glorified in them.

All mine are yours and Yours are mine


  1. Believed the Word – (repentance and faith)
  2. Kept the Word – (trust, endurance, perseverance)
  3. Lived the Word – (living the life where Christ is glorified through OUR LIFE)


They gloried Him by their Faith, Knowledge, & Obedience


His request to the Father – vv. 11-19


Jesus knew He was leaving and that the disciples were staying.


Holy Father – only here in the NT.


They may be one


My joy may be fulfilled in them


Kept from the evil one
