Rev. Dustin Beck, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Corpus Christi, Texas, joins host Rev. AJ Espinosa to study John 17. In the final hours before His betrayal, our Lord allows us to peer over His shoulder and enter into His prayer life. This prayer, known as the High Priestly Prayer, is prayed both for our benefit and for our instruction, much like the Lord's Prayer. Instead of “hallowed be thy name,” He prays “glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you,” contrasting two kinds of glory. Instead of “thy will be done,” He prays, “I have given them the words that you gave me.” Instead of “thy kingdom come,” Jesus asks “that they may be one even as we are one.” In an age of endless denominations, associations, and independent churches, the church may not feel very united. We should make every effort at real dialogue, but our unity doesn’t come from our efforts. We are one because Jesus says we are one, even when it doesn’t look that way. His word of gospel transforms the church into His bride, and through this heavenly wedding, we now join the family of the Father.
