John17:- Here again corruptions brought from the old defunct House to the New - 2. John 17
Jesus Prays to Be Glorified. Jesus did not need to pray as He was in Father and Father in Him. Jesus glorified our Father by laying down his life as the Lamb of God. Moses' Priests gave animal sacrifice to Adam.
1 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: A corruption bringing in the old Jewish leaven of prayers and fasting.
"Father, the hour has come. Bless your Son (and not Glorify your Son), that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God in comparison with demiurge Yahweh who was not true god, and Christ Jesus and not Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, bless and not glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
Jesus Prays for His Disciples. Jesus had no Disciples but Labourers.
6 "I have revealed you[a] to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8 For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9 This is a corruption as in Jesus we do not pray. Our Father is Omniscient. I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. Our Father is not discriminatory.
