John 17

Jesus prays to the Father:
It's time.  Glorify Me and I will glorify You.  Give Your people life, to know Us.
I have shown You to them, and I pray for them.
Let them be one, and protect them as they remain in the world and I come to You.
They are not of the world, but are sanctified by Your Word of truth.
I pray not just for these disciples here now, but for all Your people to come, that they be united and have glorious fellowship with Us.

This is a very important passage - the Son talking to the Father about what He wants for us:
  1. Life in Him
  2. Knowledge of God
  3. Sanctification by the Word, protected from corruption of the world
  4. Unity together
  5. Sharing fellowship and glory with the Trinity
