Bible Commentary for John 17:14

Wesley's Notes for John 17:14


17:12 Those whom thou hast given me I have guarded, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition - So one even of them whom God had given him is lost. So far was even that decree from being unchangeable! That the Scripture might be fulfilled - That is, whereby the Scripture was fulfilled. The son of perdition signifies one that deservedly perishes; as a son of death, #2Sam 12:5|; children of hell, #Mt 23:15|, and children of wrath, #Eph 2:3|, signify persons justly obnoxious to death, hell, wrath. #Psalm 109:8|.

17:13 In the world - That is, before I leave the world. My joy - The joy I feel at going to the Father.

17:15 That thou wouldest take them out of the world - Not yet: but that thou wouldest keep them from the evil one - Who reigns therein.
