Juan 17

Jesús ora por sí mismo

1Después de que Jesús dijera esto, dirigió la mirada al cielo y oró así:

«Padre, ha llegado la hora. Glorifica a tu Hijo, para que tu Hijo te glorifique a ti, ya que le has conferido autoridad sobre todo mortal para que él les conceda vida eterna a todos los que le has dado. Y esta es la vida eterna: que te conozcan a ti, el único Dios verdadero, y a Jesucristo, a quien tú has enviado. Yo te he glorificado en la tierra, y he llevado a cabo la obra que me encomendaste. Y ahora, Padre, glorifícame en tu presencia con la gloria que tuve contigo antes de que el mundo existiera.

Jesús ora por sus discípulos

»A los que me diste del mundo les he revelado quién eres.[a] Eran tuyos; tú me los diste y ellos han obedecido tu palabra. Ahora saben que todo lo que me has dado viene de ti, porque les he entregado las palabras que me diste, y ellos las aceptaron; saben con certeza que salí de ti, y han creído que tú me enviaste. Ruego por ellos. No ruego por el mundo, sino por los que me has dado, porque son tuyos. 10 Todo lo que yo tengo es tuyo, y todo lo que tú tienes es mío; y por medio de ellos he sido glorificado. 11 Ya no voy a estar por más tiempo en el mundo, pero ellos están todavía en el mundo, y yo vuelvo a ti.

»Padre santo, protégelos con el poder de tu nombre, el nombre que me diste, para que sean uno, lo mismo que nosotros. 12 Mientras estaba con ellos, los protegía y los preservaba mediante el nombre que me diste, y ninguno se perdió sino aquel que nació para perderse, a fin de que se cumpliera la Escritura.

13 »Ahora vuelvo a ti, pero digo estas cosas mientras todavía estoy en el mundo, para que tengan mi alegría en plenitud. 14 Yo les he entregado tu palabra, y el mundo los ha odiado porque no son del mundo, como tampoco yo soy del mundo. 15 No te pido que los quites del mundo, sino que los protejas del maligno. 16 Ellos no son del mundo, como tampoco lo soy yo. 17 Santifícalos en la verdad; tu palabra es la verdad. 18 Como tú me enviaste al mundo, yo los envío también al mundo. 19 Y por ellos me santifico a mí mismo, para que también ellos sean santificados en la verdad.

Jesús ora por todos los creyentes

20 »No ruego solo por estos. Ruego también por los que han de creer en mí por el mensaje de ellos, 21 para que todos sean uno. Padre, así como tú estás en mí y yo en ti, permite que ellos también estén en nosotros, para que el mundo crea que tú me has enviado. 22 Yo les he dado la gloria que me diste, para que sean uno, así como nosotros somos uno: 23 yo en ellos y tú en mí. Permite que alcancen la perfección en la unidad, y así el mundo reconozca que tú me enviaste y que los has amado a ellos tal como me has amado a mí.

24 »Padre, quiero que los que me has dado estén conmigo donde yo estoy. Que vean mi gloria, la gloria que me has dado porque me amaste desde antes de la creación del mundo.

25 »Padre justo, aunque el mundo no te conoce, yo sí te conozco, y estos reconocen que tú me enviaste. 26 Yo les he dado a conocer quién eres, y seguiré haciéndolo, para que el amor con que me has amado esté en ellos, y yo mismo esté en ellos».

John 17

Jesus Prays for Himself

1After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed. He said,

“Father, the time has come. Bring glory to your Son. Then your Son will bring glory to you. You gave him authority over all people. He gives eternal life to all those you have given him. And what is eternal life? It is knowing you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth. I have finished the work you gave me to do. So now, Father, give glory to me in heaven where your throne is. Give me the glory I had with you before the world began.

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

“I have shown you to the disciples you gave me out of the world. They were yours. You gave them to me. And they have obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. I gave them the words you gave me. And they accepted them. They knew for certain that I came from you. They believed that you sent me. I pray for them. I am not praying for the world. I am praying for those you have given me, because they are yours. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. Glory has come to me because of my disciples. 11 I will not remain in the world any longer. But they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name. It is the name you gave me. Keep them safe so they can be one, just as you and I are one. 12 While I was with them, I guarded them. I kept them safe through the name you gave me. None of them has been lost, except the one who was headed for ruin. It happened so that Scripture would come true.

13 “I am coming to you now. But I say these things while I am still in the world. I say them so that those you gave me can have the same joy that I have. 14 I have given them your word. The world has hated them. That’s because they are not part of the world any more than I am. 15 I do not pray that you will take them out of the world. I pray that you will keep them safe from the evil one. 16 They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to it. 17 Use the truth to make them holy. Your word is truth. 18 You sent me into the world. In the same way, I have sent them into the world. 19 I make myself holy for them so that they too can be made holy by the truth.

Jesus Prays for All Believers

20 “I do not pray only for them. I pray also for everyone who will believe in me because of their message. 21 Father, I pray they will be one, just as you are in me and I am in you. I want them also to be in us. Then the world will believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory you gave me. I did this so they would be one, just as we are one. 23 I will be in them, just as you are in me. This is so that they may be brought together perfectly as one. Then the world will know that you sent me. It will also show the world that you have loved those you gave me, just as you have loved me.

24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am. I want them to see my glory, the glory you have given me. You gave it to me because you loved me before the world was created.

25 “Father, you are holy. The world does not know you, but I know you. Those you have given me know you have sent me. 26 I have shown you to them. And I will continue to show you to them. Then the love you have for me will be in them. I myself will be in them.”
