Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 17:1-3.


John 17:2

_ _ given — gavest

_ _ him power over all flesh — (See on Matthew 11:27; see on Matthew 28:18-20).

_ _ give eternal life to as many as, etc. — literally, “to all that which thou hast given him.” (See on John 6:37-40).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 17:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 17:2

As thou hast given him power over all flesh — This answers to glorify thy Son. That he may give eternal life, &c. — This answers to that thy Son may glorify thee. To all whom thou hast given him — To all believers. This is a clear proof that Christ designed his sacrifice should avail for all: yea, that all flesh, every man, should partake of everlasting life. For as the Father had given him power over all flesh, so he gave himself a ransom for all.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 17:2

As thou hast given him power over (a) all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

(a) Over all men.
