Adam Clarke Commentary

I am glorified in them - Christ speaks of the things which were not, but which should be, as though they were. He anticipates the glorifying of his name by the successful preaching of the apostles.

John 17:10

All Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine

I.
THE SAME NAMES AND TITLES: Jehovah (
Hebrews 1:10); God Romans 9:11; 1 Timothy 3:16).

II. THE SAME NATURE AND ESSENCE: “I and My Father are one.”

III. THE SAME PROPERTIES: Eternity (John 1:1); omnipotence, as seen in Christ’s miracles; omniscience: “He knew what was in man”; omnipresence: “Lo, I am with you alway.”

IV. THE SAME WORKS (John 5:17; Joh_5:19).

V. THE SAME WILL AND PURPOSE (Matthew 26:39).

VI. THE SAME PROPRIETY IN ALL THE GODLY (John 8:16; Joh_20:17).

VII. THE SAME POWER FOR THE PRESERVATION OF CHRISTIANS (John 10:28-30). (D. Burgess.)

I am glorified in them.--

Christ glorified in His disciples

I. BY THEIR DELIVERANCE FROM CONDEMNATION AND THEIR ACCEPTANCE WITH GOD THROUGH HIS MERIT.

II. BY THE CHANGE WHICH HE HAS EFFECTED IN THEIR CHARACTER.

III. BY THEIR CONFIDENCE WHICH HE HAS GAINED.

IV. BY THEIR CONTENTMENT AND RESIGNATION TO HIS WILL.

V. BY THEIR OBEDIENCE TO HIS LAWS AND THEIR GRADUAL IMPROVEMENT IN PRACTICAL PIETY.

VI. BY THEIR PUBLIC PROFESSION OF HIS GOSPEL AND THEIR ZEAL IN DIFFUSING IT. (Congregational Remembrancer.)

Christ glorified in His people

I. BY THE DERIVATION OF ALL THEIR EXCELLENCIES FROM HIM.

II. IN THEIR HOLY WALK.

III. BY THE CHEERFULNESS OF THEIR LIVES.

IV. BY THEIR READINESS TO SUFFER FOR HIS SAKE.

V. IN THEIR PROFESSION OF HIS NAME.

VI. BY THEIR EXERTIONS TO PROMOTE HIS CAUSE. (W. Jay.)

Christ glorified in His saints

I. AS THE PURCHASE OF HIS BLOOD. As the fruit of His soul-travail they indicate the success of His redeeming work.

II. AS THE TROPHIES OF HIS POWER. Having been rescued from the thraldom of sin and brought into His kingdom, they attest the all-conquering might of His love.

III. AS THE CREATIONS OF HIS GRACE. Being renewed in the spirit of their minds and recreated after His image, they reveal in their moral likeness to Him the beauty of holiness that is in Him.

IV. AS THE SUBJECTS OF HIS EMPIRE. In their willing subjection to His throne they proclaim the gentle character of His rule.

V. AS THE PREACHERS OF HIS GOSPEL. In the testimonies they afford by their lips and lives that Christ is exalted they show forth His glory before men. (T. Whitelaw, D. D.)

Christ glorified in His disciples

I. We glorify Christ BY FAITH. Now, faith hath a double office, which

1. Accepts Christ. When men slight the offers of Christ which God makes to them, they dishonour Him exceedingly (Acts 4:11; Mt 1 Peter 2:7).

2. Presents Christ. In all our endeavours to God we must build our acceptance on the merits of Christ (John 14:1).

II. BY HOLINESS. Every Christian should walk so as remembering that Christ’s honour lieth at stake.

1. For the manner; your practice should be elevated according to the height of your privileges in Christ. A Christian should do more than a man (1 Corinthians 3:3). We expect that he should go faster that rides on horseback than he that goes on foot. There should be a singularity of holy life.

2. For the principle; Christ must be honoured. You must make Him the principle of your obedience to God (Philippians 4:13; Galatians 2:20.)

3. For the end; you must make His interest the great end of your lives Philippians 1:21; Romans 14:7-8).

4. For the motive; gratitude to Christ (2 Corinthians 5:14).

III. IN OUR ENJOYMENTS. When we think of our title to anything, think, This I have by gift, be it justification, sanctification, glorification, comfort of the creatures. Whatever privilege we look upon as ours, we must see Christ in it (1 Corinthians 1:22-23).

IV. BY DOING AND SUFFERING FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF HIS INTEREST AND KINGDOM (2 Corinthians 5:13). Let glory to Christ be written, though it be with our blood; only with these cautions:

1. We must think ourselves to be honoured by this service, how grievous, disgraceful, and troublesome soever it be (2 Corinthians 5:9).

2. There must be a sense of your unworthiness (Luke 17:10).

3. You must ascribe all to Christ’s glory; as Joab, when he had conquered Rabbah, sent for David to take the honour: so must we do for Christ (1 Corinthians 15:10; 1 Chronicles 29:1.4):

V. BY BEING ZEALOUS FOR HIS INSTITUTIONS then you honour Christ, by giving the wisdom and power of a lawgiver to Him (Matthew 15:6).

VI. BY TAKING SOME SOLEMN TIME TO MEDITATE ON AND ADMIRE THE EXCELLENCY OF HIS PERSON AND THE FULNESS OF HIS REDEMPTION. In heaven this will be our great work (Revelation 4:10-11). (T. Manton, D. D.)

Christ glorified in the disciples

It is not difficult to see how the Son was glorified in them. They had been His faithful and devoted followers in all His wanderings; they had forsaken all that they might be His disciples; they had seen His miracles, heard and received His words, and believed that He came forth from the Father. They had suffered the loss of all earthly things for His name’s sake; they were the depositaries of His truth; they had stood forth alone with Him against nearly all the world; after His ascension they were to manifest forth His glory to all the world, and under Him to go forth to subjugate that world which He, in His death, had actually conquered. And what they did and how they glorified Him after His departure we know well from the inspired record of their labours. (T. Alexander, M. A.)

The apologetic Christ

1. “He was glorified in them”; made known by them, by their words and lives, as Jesus the Saviour, as the anointed King, and in the beauty of His character and in the grandeur of His Person.

2. Wonderful praise coming from such a source. Yet it was not uncommon for Christ to speak words of commendation. He praised the centurion, the woman of Canaan, the woman who anointed Him in Bethany. And here He praises all His apostles.

3. But who were the men of whom Christ said this? Men of influence, of wealth, of learning? If not these, surely they were great saints. On the contrary, Christ rebuked them again and again for their little faith, for their ambition, for their mistakes and wrong purposes. Wonderful words of praise to say of men who in a few hours would forsake Christ, and deny Him.

4. Yet the Christ who praised these men was Truth itself, and could not flatter nor be deceived. It is manifest, therefore

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And all mine are thine, and thine are mine,.... Christ is speaking not of things but of persons; otherwise all the perfections of his nature as God, and all the works he did, and doctrines he taught as man, were of his Father; as all the perfections of his Father, his nature, his names, his works, his worship, were his; the same that belongs to the one belongs to the other: but persons are here meant, and these the elect of God, particularly the apostles, who were his and his Father's; belonged to them both by election, covenant transactions, redemption, and efficacious grace in conversion; which mutual interest arises from an union in nature, an agreement in covenant, and a conjunction in operation:

and I am glorified in them: or by them, they ascribing all divine perfections, works and worship to him; attributing the whole of their salvation to him, and giving him all the glory of it; believing in him; walking worthy of him, in their lives and conversations; suffering patiently and cheerfully for his sake; and abiding by his Gospel and ordinances; and he will be glorified by them, and in them hereafter, and that to all eternity.

all mine are thine, and thine are mine — literally, “All My things are Thine and Thy things are Mine.” (On this use of the neuter gender, see on John 6:37-40). Absolute COMMUNITY OF PROPERTY between the Father and the Son is here expressed as nakedly as words can do it. (See on John 17:5).

Robertson's Word Pictures in the New Testament

Are (εστινestin). Singular number in the Greek (is), not the plural εισινeisin (are), emphasizing the unity of the whole as in John 16:15. “This no creature can say in reference to God” (Luther).

I am glorified in them (δεδοχασμαι εν αυτοιςdedoxasmai en autois). “I stand glorified (perfect passive indicative of δοχαζωdoxazō) in the disciples” (εν αυτοιςen autois), in spite of all their shortcomings and failings. There is comfort for us in this.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

All things that are mine are thine, and that are thine are mine — These are very high and strong expressions, too grand for any mere creature to use; as implying that all things whatsoever, inclusive of the Divine nature, perfections, and operations, are the common property of the Father and the Son. And this is the original ground of that peculiar property, which both the Father and the Son have in the persons who were given to Christ as Mediator; according to what is said in the close of the verse, of his being glorified by them; namely, believing in him, and so acknowledging his glory.

The Fourfold Gospel

and all things that are mine are thine, and thine are mine: and I am glorified in them1.

  1. And all things that are mine are thine, and thine are mine: and I am glorified in them. As a third plea he urges the joint possession which the Father held with him in the disciples, and the further fact that the Son was glorified in the disciples.

Calvin's Commentary on the Bible

И все Мое Твое. К этому же относится и предыдущая фраза, где Христос говорит, что Отец непременно Его услышит. Я, – говорит Он, – поручаю Тебе только тех, кого Ты Сам считаешь Своими. Ведь Я не имею чего-то отдельно от Тебя. Поэтому Я никогда не получу от Тебя отказа. Во второй части Христос показывает, что имеет подобающую причину заботиться об избранных. Они принадлежат Ему именно потому, что Отец считает их Своими. Все же это сказано для укрепления нашей веры. Спасение подобает искать только во Христе. Но мы не сможем довольствоваться Христом, если не будем знать: в Его лице мы обладаем Самим Богом. Итак, надо веровать в единство Отца и Сына, делающее так, что все является для Них общим. Во второй части Христос добавляет: Он прославится в учениках. Посему справедливо, если Он в свою очередь будет способствовать их спасению. И это лучшее свидетельство для укрепления нашей веры. Христос хочет прославится в нас, и поэтому никогда не перестанет заботиться о нашем спасении.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

Ver. 10. And I am glorified in them] It will be a singular prop to our prayers, if we so carry ourselves, that Christ in his daily intercession may give this testimony of us to the Father. He undertakes for us, as it were, and gives his word, that we, being mindful of our reconciliation by him, shall shun sin by his grace, and not provoke him as before. This should cause us to live so as Christ may have credit by us, and we may have courage to come to God by Christ.

Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New Testament

We may understand this two ways;

1. Of all persons; all my friends, all my disciples, are thine as well as mine.

Thence learn, that the Father and the Son have a like share and property in all believers.

2. The words in the original, being of the neuter gender, signify, all thy things are mine, and all my things are thine.

Christ and his Father are one, and they agree in one; they have the same essence and nature, the same attributes and will; Christ hath all things that the Father hath, willeth all things that the Father willeth, and doeth all things that the Father doeth; he is therefore really and essentially God. It followeth, And I am glorified in them: that is, I am made glorious by their owning and receiving me, by their believing in me, and accepting of me for their Lord and Saviour.

Thence note, that the Lord Jesus Christ is eminently glorified in and by all those that believe in him, and belong unto him.

Greek Testament Critical Exegetical Commentary

10.] Compare ch. John 16:15 and note. “It were not so much if He had only said, ‘All Mine is Thine;’ for that we may all say, that all we have is God’s. But this is a far greater thing, that He inverts this and says, ‘All Thine is Mine.’ This can no creature say before God.” Luther, Stier, v. 418, edn. 2.

The E. V.,—‘All Mine are Thine,’ &c.,—gives the erroneous impression that persons only are meant, whereas it is all things, in the widest meaning,—the Godhead itself included,—of which this is asserted.

ἐν αὐτοῖς, not ‘by their means,’ but in them; by that ἐγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς of John 17:23, the life of the vine in the branches; so that the fruit of the branches is the glory of the vine, by the sap of the vine living in the branches. All this again is proleptic.

Heinrich Meyer's Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament

John 17:10. καὶ τὰ ἐμὰ πάνταἐμά] is parenthetic (on καί parentheticum, see Fritzsche, ad Rom. I. 13, p. 35), and καὶ δεδόξ. ἐν αὐτοῖς is still in connection with ὅτι, John 17:9, containing a second ground of the intercession.

As regards the above parenthesis, when Jesus prayed ὅτι σοί εἰσι, John 17:9, His glance was extended from this concrete relation to the category, to the general reciprocal community of property, which, in matters relating to His work, exists between Him, the Son and plenipotentiary of the Father, and the Father. Both have the same work, the same aim, the same means, the same power, the same grace and truth, etc., in common; neither has and works separate from the other, and for Himself; God in Christ, and He in God. Comp. on John 16:15. Luther aptly remarks: “It would not yet be so much if He simply said: All that is mine is Thine; for that every one can say …; but this is much greater, that He inverts the relation, and says: All that is Thine is mine; this no creature can say in reference to God.”

δεδόξ. ἐν αὐτ.] I am glorified in them, in their person and activity, in so far as they are bearers and furtherers of my glory and knowledge upon earth, so precious and important, then, that I pray for them. What is already begun, and is certainly to be further accomplished in the near future, Jesus views, speaking in the perfect with prophetic anticipation, as completed and actually existing (Kühner, II. p. 72), and ἐν denotes the relation resting on, contained in them, as in John 13:31-32, John 14:13.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

In the Greek the adjectives are of the neuter gender, so as the sense is not, All my friends, or all my disciples, are thine also; but, All my things are thine, and all thy things are mine; which is no more than he hath before often said. Christ and his Father have all things common, neither of them have any thing that is not the other’s: they are one, and they agree in one; they have the same essence, the same will, the same attributes, the same friends.

And I am (saith our Saviour) glorified, or made glorious, in them, by their owning, receiving, and embracing me, and accepting me as their Saviour. So as this verse containeth two arguments more, enforcing his petition on the behalf of his elect:

1. His Father’s propriety in them, as well as his.

2. Their love to him, and the glory which redounded to him from their faith and holiness.

Justin Edwards' Family Bible New Testament

I am glorified in them; on their side, by their reception of me as a Saviour, and committing themselves and all their interests to my guidance and disposal; on my side, by the manifestation which I make in them of my power and love, in sanctifying them, giving them the victory over the world and Satan, and bringing them to glory everlasting.

Schaff's Popular Commentary on the New Testament

John 17:10. And all things that are mine are thine, and thine mine, and I have been glorified in them. It does not seem necessary to regard the two first clauses of this verse as a parenthesis, and to restrict the last words ‘in them’ to the disciples only who had been spoken of in John 17:9. Jesus seems rather to be carried away, by the thought that disciples one with Him were as truly one with His Father, to another and a more glorious thought, that all that He possessed was His Father’s and all that was His Father’s was His, so real, so intimate, so deep is the unity between Them. In all things, then, though (it may be) especially in His disciples, He has been glorified. But His being glorified in them is really the Father’s being so, because the glory flows from their recognition of Him, and their fellowship with Him, as the Son. It is not, therefore, because they glorify Himself that He is to pray for their being kept by the Father, but because the promotion of His glory is the promotion of the Father’s glory. From every thought of the prayer we must ascend to the Father, that glorious Name in which, with its blended authority and love, are given the order and the happiness of all creation.

In them it had been manifested that Christ was the messenger of God and had the words of eternal life.

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

E.W. Bullinger's Companion Bible Notes

all Mine are Thine, &c. = all things that are Mine are Thine, &c. This is a claim of perfect equality. Everything belonging to the Father, from essential being to works, the Son claims as His own. Luther says, "Any man can say " All mine is Thine", but only the Son can say "All that is Thine is Mine. " Compare 1 Corinthians 3:21-23.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(10) And all mine are thine, and thine are mine.—Better, And all My things are Thine, and Thy things are Mine. The Authorised version leaves the impression that the pronouns are masculine, and that persons are exclusively meant; whereas the words are all-inclusive, and assert absolute community in all things between the Father and the Son.

And I am glorified in them.—The division of verses is unfortunate, as the last words of this verse are closely connected with the last words of John 17:9, and the general assertion which intervenes is a parenthesis. The thought is, “For they are Thine (and all My things are Thine, and Thy things are Mine), and I am glorified in them.” The fact that Christ is glorified in them forms, then, a second reason for His special prayer for them. The tense is perfect. Its accomplishment is already in part realised (John 17:6-8; comp. John 15:8), and is more fully to be realised in that future of the Spirit’s work which all through this chapter is regarded as present. (Comp. Note on John 16:14.)

Ernst Hengstenberg on John, Revelation, Ecclesiastes, Ezekiel & Psalms

Ver. 10. "And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am glorified in them."

Only "all Mine are Thine" belongs to the present matter. "All Thine are Mine" is, added only to place in full light the inwardness of the fellowship on which "all Mine are Thine" rests: it is equivalent to "even as all Thine is Mine." So also, in Matthew 11:27, the clause, "No man knoweth the Son but the Father," does not immediately belong to the matter in hand, but serves only as a basis of support for "No man knoweth the Father but the Son." Luther remarks: "It were not so much to say. All Mine is Thine; for every man may declare, that whatever he has is God's. But it is much greater when He inverts it, and says. All Thine is Mine; for no creature of God can say that." We have an elucidation of "All Thine is Mine" in Revelation 5:12. There the ten thousands of angels cry, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing." The seven ascriptions correspond with the sevenfold praise of God in ch. John 7:12.

Christ was glorified in His people, inasmuch as they perceived and acknowledged, beneath the veil of His servant-form, the true Son of God; and even on that account they became the object of more gracious care to the Father, who beholds His own honour in the honour of His Son: comp. ch. John 11:4. Luther: "By the world I am obscured, dishonoured, and condemned; but they, My disciples, because they hear the word that I am sent of Thee, and that I have all that is Thine, glorify Me. Thereby I am revealed and plainly set before them, so that they regard Me altogether differently from the world, even as Thy Son, the eternal and true God. No possessions and no honours in the world are to be compared with this, that He will be glorified in the infirmity of our poor flesh and blood, and that God the Father is so highly honoured and well pleased when we magnify and honour the Christ."

Calvin's Commentary on the Bible

10.And all things that are mine are thine. The object of the former clause is to show that the Father will assuredly listen to him. “I do not,” says he, “plead with thee for any but those whom thou acknowledgest to be thine, for I have nothing separated from thee, and therefore I shall not meet with a refusal.” In the second clause, and thine are mine, he shows that he has good reason for caring about the elect; for they are his in consequence of their being his Father’s. All these things are spoken for the confirmation of our faith. We must not seek salvation anywhere else than in Christ. But we shall not be satisfied with having Christ, if we do not know that we possess God in him. We must therefore believe that there is such a unity between the Father and the Son as makes it impossible that they shall have anything separate from each other.

And I am glorified in them. This is connected with the second clause of the verse, and thine are mine; for it follows that it is reasonable that he, for his part, should promote their salvation; and this is a most excellent testimony for confirming our faith, that Christ never will cease to care for our salvation, since he is glorified in us.
