Known as the 'Thursday night discourse' chapters 13-17 in the gospel of John constitute what is perhaps the most intimate teaching of the disciples by Jesus. But chapter 17 is of particular interest because it records an the most intimate interaction--a prayer--between Jesus and God the Father. It is striking, revealing, and intense.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones, widely regarded as one of the finest and intense expositor's of the Bible is perhaps the ideal preacher, for unpacking and opening up this prayer both to our hearts and our minds. In The Assurance of our Salvation: Exploring the Depth of Jesus Prayer for His Own Martyn Lloyd-Jones provides his customary verse-by-verse exposition of John 17 and in doing so lays before us the richness, the depth, the wonder--and teh assurance--of God's plan of salvation.
