7th Sunday in Easter – The High Priestly Prayer
Bible Text: Acts 1:1-14, Psalm 68:1-20, 1 Peter 4:12-19, John 17:1-11 | Preacher: Fr. Jim Cheetham | Series: Easter | We focus on the ‘High-Priestly prayer’ Jesus prayed before He ascended into heaven. This prayer signifies the completion of Jesus’ mission on earth and His continuous work after earth.
In this prayer, Jesus makes a clear distintion between the church and the world and also makes a distinction between himself and the world and how this pertains to His mission. The 4 Persons referred to in this prayer are the Father, the son, the church and the world.
