John 17 (pt 1)

The pressure squeezes this man-God into the moment,

Now is the time…

Indeed, since before time was conceptualised,

All things have led to this:

An exhausted former-carpenter,

Controversial rabbi,

Ready to grasp his destiny.

He will be glorified – the glory he has always had;

But this glory will be seen only in hindsight,

Glorious beatings, glorious nails, glorious slow-death…

Glorious resurrection and restoration of all things.

And we are invited to share the same glory.

“After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.  For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began”. [John 17:1-5]
