Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 17:24-26.


John 17:25

_ _ O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee — knew thee not.

_ _ but I have known thee — knew thee.

_ _ and these have known — knew.

_ _ that thou hast sent — sentest

_ _ me — As before He said “Holy Father,” when desiring the display of that perfection on His disciples (John 17:11), so here He styles Him “Righteous Father,” because He is appealing to His righteousness or justice, to make a distinction between those two diametrically opposite classes — “the world,” on the one hand, which would not “know the Father, though brought so nigh to it in the Son of His love, and, on the other, Himself, who recognized and owned Him, and even His disciples, who owned His mission from the Father.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 17:24-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 17:25

Righteous Father — The admission of believers to God through Christ, flows even from the justice of God.
