Session 8.19 Starter
This passage from John is part of a larger conversation and prayer of Jesus at the last supper often referred to as his farewell discourse. These are Jesus final words to and for his disciples. What can such important words also offer to followers of Jesus today?
Scripture: John 17:20-26
I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
