Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 295

  1. “Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you” (John  17:1).

The hour had come for the big reveal. Jesus, once tucked quietly off the international scene, a miracle-working Teacher hidden in the hills of Judea, would now step to center stage in the greatest act of love ever known. God’s plan, in place since before the world was formed, was on the verge of full revelation. But this moment, the one clearly achieving the required redemptive transaction, was more than a sacrifice, more than a payment, more than a satisfaction of the Creator’s righteousness. For in this moment, every information to be gained about that Creator would be visible, no longer shielded from view, fully on display as Jesus would “glorify” the Father. Here, Jesus asks that in this moment His own true nature might be made known as well. That He would be glorified, apparent as one with the Father, even as His act of sacrifice would require the unbearable pain of separation.
