1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. 6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

1 Cary W = "Jesus was given the task of completely overcoming every obstacle, disease, burden and fear of man; He bore the entirety of all combined human karmic debt.  He went to hell for three days; to open all those dungeon gates, to bring light to the darkest, lowest soul.  To bring salvation.  To accomplish this, He chose to come here as a mere human, with no special powers.  He only got the anointing of the Father and the Holy Spirit at John's baptism.  That was how He overcame the flesh and was able to let eternal life flow from Him to all who received Him."
2 Sarah Mangum = "This is the gospel reading for the seventh Sunday after Easter in the Roman Catholic Lectionary for Mass."
3 Cary W = "Jesus says we, whom God has given Him, were with Him in the beginning.  It is as if we all were sent here by God, Jesus to be the Christ, and the rest of us, His Bride, to complete His sufferings so as to fully manifest God's authority, power and kingdom in our lives each day.."
4 Sarah Mangum = "This is the gospel reading for the seventh Sunday after Easter in the Protestant Revised Common Lectionary."
5 Cary W = "Even before Jesus ascended, He is seeing all the Father has done and will do in us, through the Holy Spirit, which is to glorify Christ in each one of us.  Present tense."
6 Cary W = "He before He has suffered and died, He is seeing Himself already with the Father, and us now protected and made one by His Holy Spirit.  The Spirit transcends all time and distance limitations, bringing all things into the present tense.  This is what keeps us unified with Jesus in Heaven with the Father.  We have His Name."
7 Cary W = "Once we believe in Christ, we are given a whole new vision; we see the Kingdom of God and this translates us out of the 3D world of ordinary humans.  We know their are angels and living saints.  We know all life is eternal, present, all happening now.  All this makes us pretty unworldly beings, like Jesus."
8 Cary W = "Jesus knows we all will be Home at the right time, but while here, He wants us to stay here to be the light of the world, as He was.  We have now the same calling as Christ, for just as God sent Him in the world to save and sanctify, so we too are sent by Him to save and sanctify every one the Father gives us."
9 Deena E = "This shows the Priesthood of Christ. He intercedes on behalf of the disciples with him and all those who will become disciples (the church today) on account of their testimony. Jesus is the Great High Priest (Hebrews 4:14)."
10 Cary W = "Cool prayer Jesus!  He is praying not only that you and I be one, as His living followers, but that we be one with all the saints, of all time.  You really should ponder that one."
11 Cary W = "All the intimacy we witnessed with Jesus and the Father, Jesus is inviting us to participate in.  As we do, we find our unity with each other, with Jesus in us, the Father in Him, we become perfected into His glorious church, bride, and body."
12 Cary W = "This is such a blessed invitation to us that Jesus has asked of the Father, that while here, we can also be where He is and behold is presence and present glory.  Father help us enter into this divine fellowship."
