Discussion for John 17:5

  • Barbara for verse 5
    Because of Jesus Christ we get to be Part of the Blessing
  • I believe this verse is as convincing as any found in the Bible in proving two very important points. Jesus is co eternal and was with God in the beginning of the World. Secondly, Jesus and God are two different centers of conscientiousness.Add the Holy Spirit, and you have the uni pleural Godhead that is made so patently obvious in the Bible. Oneness beleivers need to adhere.
  • Louise Woods Anderson for verse 5
    The revelation came to me this morning, that Jesus, as the second Adam, the quickening Spirit, desired to be made one in his body with the Father as he was in the Spirit before he took on flesh (John 1:1-4, 12-16; Hebrews 10:5,7), so that we Gentiles (as believers) could enter into the Kingdom of God in his Glorified Body according to Acts 2:38, and be glorified in the Rapture (Philippians 3:21). This is "Wonderful News." I am in the Glorified Body of Christ, Expectedly waiting for my glorified body in the rapture. Thank God for including me, a Gentile, in the blessings of Abraham's SEED; Jesus, the Christ!
