Study Questions: John 17:1-5

Posted by Justin Pearson on


We are getting near the end of our journey through the Gospel of John. Only 11 more sermons to go!

This week we will be in John 17:1-5.

Here are some questions for you to consider as you study the text ahead of Sunday:

  • Read all of John 17. What is the context of this prayer? How do you see the heart of Jesus on display?
  • Why is Jesus praying for the Father to glorify him? What does he mean by this?
  • In v. 2 we learn more of the basis for his request in v. 1. What do you learn about Jesus and his mission in this verse? What does it mean that he been given authority over all flesh?
  • Jesus gives a definition of eternal life in v. 3. What stands out to you? How does this shape your thinking about life now and in the future?
  • What does Jesus mean by saying he accomplished the work given to him by the Father? 
  • What do learn about the Trinity and eternal nature of the Son from v. 5? 
  • How does this text encourage you? Who is someone you can encourage with something you learned from this text?

Enjoy Jesus this week!

.grace and peace.
