Matthew 11:27

All things have been delivered unto me of my Father (panta moi paredoqh upo tou patro mou). This sublime claim is not to be whittled down or away by explanations. It is the timeless aorist like edoqh in Luke 28:18 and "points back to a moment in eternity, and implies the pre-existence of the Messiah" (Plummer). The Messianic consciousness of Christ is here as clear as a bell. It is a moment of high fellowship. Note epiginwskei twice for "fully know." Note also boulhtai =wills, is willing. The Son retains the power and the will to reveal the Father to men.
