People's Bible Notes for John 17:11


Joh 17:11 I am no more in the world, but these are in the world. He now goes to the Father; these are left behind to preach the gospel, establish his kingdom, manifest his glory. Hence, he pleads that he may "keep them through his name", or power and love. He especially pleads that they may be kept "one", united as the Father and the Son.
