John 17:1-8 MSG

1 Jesus said these things. Then, raising his eyes in prayer, he said: Father, it's time. Display the bright splendor of your Son So the Son in turn may show your bright splendor.
2 You put him in charge of everything human So he might give real and eternal life to all in his charge.
3 And this is the real and eternal life: That they know you, The one and only true God, And Jesus Christ, whom you sent.
4 I glorified you on earth By completing down to the last detail What you assigned me to do.
5 And now, Father, glorify me with your very own splendor, The very splendor I had in your presence Before there was a world.
6 I spelled out your character in detail To the men and women you gave me. They were yours in the first place; Then you gave them to me, And they have now done what you said.
7 They know now, beyond the shadow of a doubt, That everything you gave me is firsthand from you,
8 For the message you gave me, I gave them; And they took it, and were convinced That I came from you. They believed that you sent me.
