  • 22. The Farewell Discourse was given by Jesus immediately after the Last Supper in the Upper Room in Jerusalem, the night before His crucifixion.
  • 23. Jesus tells the disciples that He will be going away to the Father and that He will send the Holy Spirit to guide them.
  • 24. The Prince of Peace bestows peace on the disciples and commands them to love one another. http://thegemseekers.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/artbook__054_054__thelastsupper____.jpg
  • 25. The unity of love is a key theme in the discourse, manifested by several reiterations of the New Commandment: "love one another as I have loved you".
  • 26. Jesus showed them how He loved them by laying down His life for them. 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John 15:13 NKJV
  • 27. Since we are to love one another as He has loved us, that means we should be willing to lay down our lives for each other. http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmnn3b72dZ1qk6bgxo1_500.jpg
  • 28. The discourse contains the allegory of The Vine which positions Jesus as the vine and the disciples as the branches. http://www.finaltrump.com/wp-content/uploads/Vine.jpg
  • 29. Jesus then warns the disciples of upcoming persecutions: "If the world hates you, remember that they hated Me before you".
  • 30. In the final part of the discourse (John 17:1-26) Jesus prays for: 1) Himself, 2) His disciples and 3) the coming church(us).
  • 31. While the earlier parts of the discourse are addressed to the disciples, this final part addresses the Father, as Jesus turns His eyes to Heaven and prays.
  • 32. The key themes of the prayer are: 1) the glorification of the Father and 2) petitions for the unity of the disciples through love.
  • 33. Jesus Prays for Himself John 17:1-5 Jesus Prays for His Disciples John 17:6-19 Jesus Prays for Us John 17:20-26
  • 34. At the end of the Farewell Discourse, this prayer of Jesus is known as the Farewell Prayer or as the High Priestly Prayer (why?).
  • 35. In the Old Covenant, it was the high priest who offered the bloody sacrifice to Yahweh on His sacred altar and whose responsibility it was to serve the covenant people
  • 36. as God's representative and the people's intercessor. http://www.bcnn6.com/images/ark-cov-priest.jpg
  • 37. Now, in the New Covenant order, it is Jesus Who is offering Himself as the sacrifice and His intercession on behalf of His disciples to God the Father.
  • 38. Therefore, this prayer has come to be known as His High Priestly Prayer.
  • 39. As we read the words of Jesus' prayer we have the sense that even though He is still speaking from the Upper Room in Jerusalem, He has already begun to cross the barrier
  • 40. between time and eternity and that He has already taken His first steps toward the cross and His return to the Father (see “Now I am no John 17:11 longer in the world…”).
  • 41. http://edblonski.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/lords-supper.jpg
  • 42. Once the prayer has ended, the events of Jesus' Passion and the end of His earthly life unfold rather quickly.
  • 43. John 17:1-26 NKJV
  • 44. Jesus Prays for Himself John 17:1-5 NKJV 1 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,
  • 45. 2 as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.
  • 46. 3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent.
  • 47. 4I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.
  • 48. 5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.” John 17:1-5 NKJV
  • 49. The Lord Jesus is handing in His final report to the Father. http://media.salemwebnetwork.com/worshiphousemedia/resource/images/main/collections/sth-itisfinished.jpg
  • 50. *Jesus hasn't died on the Cross yet; but, as far as God is concerned, He speaks of things which are not as if they are. *Future tense for God is just as accurate as the past.
  • 51. *Our Lord Jesus is going to the Cross to die and then will rise again. On the Cross, He said, "It is finished" (John 19:30). That means our redemption was finished.

  • 53. Colossians 2:14 NKJV 14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us.
  • 54. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. (Col 2:14) http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-c0TPhHWz1b4/TpXMwi9ObkI/AAAAAAAABvc/zSoM8BmhjIY/s1600/itisfinished.jpg
  • 55. He has done everything that was necessary. We can put a period there. We cannot add a thing to His finished work.
  • 56. If our salvation was dependent on what Jesus did plus our works, He could not have said, “It is finished!”
  • 57. http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/b8/8d/53/
  • 58. Therefore, the Gospel of salvation is not what God is asking you to do, but what God is telling you that He has already done for you.
  • 59. What He is looking for is your response to that which saves you.
  • 60. http://ellenlandreth.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/01-jesus-paid.jpg
  • 61. Notice in verses 1-5 that since Jesus prayed for Himself, it is not out of line nor even a mark of selfishness for us to pray for ourselves.
  • 62. When you and I go to God in prayer, we need to get our own hearts and lives right with God. We need to get in tune with Heaven.
  • 63. http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/90/bc/81/90bc811316dd3d8f21119beec1d43868.jpg

  • 66. Before you and I begin to pray for others, we need to pray for ourselves. That is not selfishness; it is essential.
  • 67. The Upper Room Discourse (Farewell Discourse) is like climbing a mountain, climaxing in this prayer. http://akwos.com/images/2013/03/mountain-climbing-luke-mcreynolds-3072x2304-669258.jpg

  • 69. Matthew Henry: "It is the most remarkable prayer following the most full and consoling discourse ever uttered on the earth."
  • 70. Martin Luther: "This is truly beyond measure a warm and hearty prayer. Jesus opens the depths of His heart, both in reference to us and to His Father, and He
  • 71. pours them all out. It sounds so honest, so simple. It is so deep, so rich, so wide. No one can fathom it." Martin Luther

  • 73. *This is the prayer which John Knox read over and over in his lifetime. *When he was on his deathbed, his wife asked him. "Where do you want me to read?" He replied,
  • 74. "Read where I first put my anchor down, in the seventeenth chapter of John." *We have the record of many others who have read it over and over.
  • 75. This is a great portion of Scripture. It is Jesus’ high priestly intercession for us which He most likely is praying for us right this moment.
  • 76. *It is a revelation to us of the communication which constantly passes between the Lord Jesus and the Father in Heaven. *His entire earthly life was a life of prayer.
  • 77. He began His ministry by going into a solitary place to pray. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_yzdHMTz1-mY/TUYjkbtqLpI/AAAAAAAACbw/EhRavgK9-kg/s1600/Jesus_praying.jpg

  • 89. What did Jesus mean when he repeatedly spoke of the Cross as His glory and His glorification?
  • 90. It is one of the facts of history that again and again it was in death that the great ones found their glory.
  • 91. It was when they died, and how they died, which showed people what and who they really were.
  • 92. They may have been misunderstood, undervalued, condemned as criminals in their lives, but their deaths showed their true place in the scheme of things.
  • 93. Joan of Arc was burned as a witch and a heretic by the English. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/96/Joan_of_arc_burning_at_stake.jpg

  • 97. The Cross was the glory of Jesus because He was never more majestic than in His death. http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/A5Y58b7_Pek/hqdefault.jpg
  • 98. The Cross was His glory because its magnet drew men to Him in a way that even His life had never done—and it remains so to this day.

  • 103. *Now He stops speaking to the disciples, and He speaks to the Father. *Although He is speaking to the Father in this chapter, He is speaking to Him for their benefit --

  • 108. We may wonder what He is praying for us; well, here it is. This is the Lord's Prayer, the prayer that He prays to the Father for us.
  • 109. The prayer in the Sermon on the Mount is not really the Lord's Prayer, it is the Model Prayer. It is the prayer that He taught to the disciples.
  • 110. *When Jesus begins the Model Prayer with "Our Father," He means this for all the believers. *But here, He does not say “our Father”, He only says “Father”.
  • 111. *It says that He "lifted up his eyes to Heaven," which means that His eyes were open. *Of course we can pray without bowing our heads & closing our eyes.
  • 112. We can pray as we walk or as we work or as we drive, or as we suffer. http://www.ubfriends.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Daniellion.jpg

  • 114. What hour? Well, the hour that had been set long ago in eternity. http://blogs.nsb.org/jonathanalexander/files/2010/09/timeseasonseternity.jpg
  • 115. As He speaks, the clock is striking the hour that was set back in eternity, because He was the Lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world. (Revelation 13:8)
  • 116. It was arranged back then; now "the hour is come.” This ‘hour’ had been mentioned by Jesus before in John 7.30; 12.23; and in 13.1.
  • 117. It referred to the hour of His going from the world to His Father (7.33; 13.1), by way of the cross (12.23). http://cardensdesign.com/imagery/Religion_0082.jpg
  • 118. It was the last final period of His life from the moment when He knew that the end was coming (13.1). http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/04/12/article-1376107-009FF1371000044C-789_634x440.jpg
  • 119. John 13:1 NKJV 1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father…
  • 120. *It was the hour of unbearable suffering. *But in the end it was through the cross and resurrection that Jesus would be glorified and vindicated and would
  • 121. bring great glory to the Father, for there on the cross, and through His resurrection, would be carried out the plan which had been laid in eternity for the redemption of His
  • 122. people (Ephesians 1.4-8; 2 Timothy 1.9). *Jesus is here conscious that He is about to face a battle of huge dimensions which will result in great glory.

  • 124. In Daniel 7:13-14 (536 BC) when the Son of Man comes into the presence of the Ancient of Days, He comes out of suffering to receive ‘dominion and glory and a kingdom’.
  • 125. But that glory must come through a cross before He receives the crown. He must be glorified through suffering.
  • 126. Remember that when He began His ministry at the wedding of Cana, His mother said to Him, "They have no wine." His answer to her was, "Woman, what have I to
  • 127. do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come" (John 2:3-4). http://s17.postimg.org/ojibflmov/jesus_no_wine.jpg
  • 128. Now the hour has come, the hour when He will pay for your sins and mine. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GPoFFV6iTuk/TZPMSjKOHDI/AAAAAAAAA3o/cZILpDfFO7k/s1600/JESUS-CRUCIFIED-RESURRECTION.jpg
  • 129. It is the hour when all the creation of God will see the love of God displayed and lavished as He takes your sins and my sins upon Himself and dies a vicarious, substitutionary,
  • 130. redemptive death for you and for me. http://savingourfuture.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/bound-lamb-32.jpg
  • 131. Ephesians 1:7-8 NKJV 7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
  • 132. 8 that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:7-8 NKJV

  • 134. The death of Christ demonstrates that God is a loving Father Who so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.
  • 135. Romans 5:8 NKJV 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
  • 136. Then the Son was raised from the dead, ascended back into Heaven, and He will be given a name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow and
  • 137. every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father! “Glorify thy Son, that Thy Son also may glorify Thee.” John 17:1b
  • 138. Here it is made openly apparent that it was Jesus’ temporary task that was the reason why He at this stage did not enjoy all of the glory of His Godhood.
  • 139. He had a temporarily lower status because He had ‘emptied Himself’ of His Godhood in order to become man, in accordance with the Father’s purpose.
  • 140. But now He was to be restored to His former position and status again in all of His glory. http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/30500000/Glory-jesus-30532194-541-336.jpg
  • 141. The partial glory of Jesus had been revealed on earth, both in the life that He lived (1.14), and in the signs that He gave (2.11; 11.4).
  • 142. John 2:11 NKJV 11 This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.
  • 143. John 11:4 NKJV 4 When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness (of Lazarus) is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
  • 144. John has also brought out that it will be revealed by His death and resurrection, by which the Son of Man will be glorified (7.39; 13.31).
  • 145. John 13:31 NKJV 31 So, when he (Judas) had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him.
  • 146. But that is a limited glory. What is spoken of here is a glory that far surpasses that glory. It is unlimited!
  • 147. It is the glory referred to in 12.41, the glory that was always His as God before He ‘emptied Himself’ (Philippians 2.7), the glory that has been His from eternity past.
  • 148. John 12:41 NKJV 41 These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke of Him.
  • 149. Isaiah 6:1-4 NKJV 1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.

  • 182. In Philippians 2, it speaks of Jesus emptying Himself. Some try to teach that He emptied Himself of His deity. Wrong!
  • 183. *John makes it very clear that the Word became flesh. *That little baby in Mary's lap is God, and He could have spoken this universe out of existence.
  • 184. *He wasn't just 99.9% God; *He was, and is, 100% God. *So of what did He empty Himself? *He emptied Himself of His prerogatives of deity; He laid aside His glory.

  • 190. Would you like to know exactly what Jesus is praying for you? http://www.ctnprayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Jesus-Is-with-You.jpg
  • 191. The answer is found in John 17:20-26 that we will discuss next Sunday!
