约翰福音-John 17章 1 节
These things Jesus spoke, and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son that the Son may glorify You;
The basic concept of the Lord’s prayer in John 17 is glorification. In verse 1 the Lord said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son that the Son may glorify You.” This is the subject, the central point, of this prayer. If we see the main points of the three previous chapters, we shall be able to understand what it means to have the Son glorified that the Father may be glorified. The Father is to glorify the Son so that the Son may glorify the Father. This is a mutual glorification between the Son and the Father. If the Father will glorify the Son, then the Son will glorify the Father.
