John 17:1-3 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Jesus Finished the Father’s Work

17 This is what Jesus prayed as he looked up into heaven,
    “Father, the time has come.
    Unveil the glorious splendor of your Son[a]
    so that I will magnify your glory!
You have already given me authority[b]
    over all people so that I may give
    the gift of eternal life to all those that you have given to me.
Eternal life means to know and experience you
    as the only true God,[c]
    and to know and experience Jesus Christ,
    as the Son whom you have sent.

  2. John 17:2 The Aramaic is translated “responsibility.”
  3. John 17:3 The Aramaic is translated “the God of truth.” This alludes to Deut. 6:4.
