Summary: Prayer of Jesus

JOHN 17: 1 – 5 (Part 1)


IF YOUR BIBLE - has words of Christ in red, you see a lot of red here

- the whole chapter is spoken by Christ

- spoken by Him in prayer

THIS IS - a prayer often confused with Matthew 6

- The prayer in Matthew 6 is actually the Model Prayer

- It was offered as a lesson on how we should pray…a model

- It has often been called the Lord’s prayer… IT IS NOT !

JOHN 17 - Is the Lord’s Prayer…

Even More Appropriately called

“The High Priestly Prayer”, OR

“Prayer Of The Great High Priest”

- The chapter has (3) clear divisions…

• V 1-5, Jesus prays for Himself

• V 6-19, Jesus prays for His Apostles

• V 20-26, Jesus prays for future believers

IN EXODUS - we know the scene of Moses approaching Burning Bush

- told to remove his shoes, that he is standing on Holy Ground

DAY OF ATONEMENT - High Priest went into Holy of Holies

- In John 17; we are standing in the Holy of Holies
