People's Bible Notes for John 17:19


Joh 17:19 For their sakes I sanctify myself. He did this when he came into the world, when he made it his meat to do the Father's will, and when he gave himself to death. We sanctify ourselves when we "present our bodies as living sacrifice" (Ro 12:1).

    Jesus Christ, ( the lamb) prayed for us to Jesus, ( the Father,) and said I have manifested THY NAME to men. The name which is above every name. JESUS! The prayer was completed by the Holy Ghost who transmitted the message in the Spirit. What an awesome gift.The Godhead complete was at work on our behalf at that moment. I praise, honor, and extol the King of Heaven.
