Jesus' High Priestly Prayer (John 17:1-5)Rev Gareth James, October 3, 2021
Part of the The Upper Room series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We are coming to start looking at this amazing chapter this
morning. JC Ryle calls it “one of the most wonderful chapter in the Bible… The most remarkable in the Bible. It stands alone, …there is nothing like it.”
How do we get to know someone well? We talk with and spend with time them, but sometimes we get to know them even better if we hear them talking, especially with family, or the person
they love the most. There we see the ease of their relationships, their freedom to speak from the heart,the knowledge there is no danger of misunderstanding, the lack of fear in sharing secrets
and all these make for a freedom of expression, of keeping nothing back. The same is true of knowledge of the Lord Jesus.
In John 13-17 we get to know Him better as we overhear Him speaking to His “friends”. Yet here in John 17 we get to know Him best of all, because we overhear Him speaking to His Father.
