“As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.”
King James Version (KJV)
17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh - This answers to glorify thy Son. That he may give eternal life, &c. - This answers to that thy Son may glorify thee. To all whom thou hast given him - To all believers. This is a clear proof that Christ designed his sacrifice should avail for all: yea, that all flesh, every man, should partake of everlasting life. For as the Father had given him power over all flesh, so he gave himself a ransom for all.
Joh 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh. This shows how the Son is to be glorified. It is by "giving him all power in heaven and earth" (Mt 28:18), and "committing all things" (Joh 3:35 13:3) to him, raising him from the dead so that "he should give eternal life".
