John 17 is often called Jesus’ High Priestly prayer, but He wasn’t High Priest yet. It was really His consecration and reward promised by the Father, prayed out loud by faith: Jesus’ life of faith, prayed in the conclusion of His life lived by faith. Here Jesus voluntarily gives Himself, having completed His earthly assignment; now, He looks toward what will be ours to share in His resurrection. There is so much faith in this prayer. Please read John 17 and Isaiah 53 in preparation.
