    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:2

    como le has dado la potestad de toda carne, para que a todos los que le diste, les d vida eterna.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 17:2

    Verse 2. As thou hast given him
    power] As the Messiah, Jesus Christ received from the Father universal dominion. All flesh, i.e. all the human race, was given unto him, that by one sacrifice of himself, he might reconcile them all to God; having by his grace tasted death for every man, Heb. ii. 9. And this was according to the promise of the universal inheritance made to Christ, Psalm ii. 8, which was to be made up of the heathen, and the uttermost parts of the land, all the Jewish people. So that he got all from God, that he might give his life a ransom for the whole. See 2 Cor. v. 14, 15; Rom. v. 21; 1 Tim. ii. 4, 6.

    That he should have eternal life, &c.] As all were delivered into his power, and he poured out his blood to redeem all, then the design of God is that all should have eternal life, because all are given for this purpose to Christ; and, that this end might be accomplished, he has become their sacrifice and atonement.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. As thou hast given him power over all flesh , etc.] All men, in distinction from angels; and these as fallen, as weak, frail, sinful, and mortal creatures; men of every nation, Jew or Gentile, and of every character, elect or non-elect: not but that he has also a power over angels; nor is his power over men limited to their flesh or bodies, but reaches to their spirits or souls also: which power is a governing, disposing, and judicial one; he rules them with a sceptre of righteousness, he disposes of them in providence as he pleases, and will judge them at the last day: and this is a power that is given him by his Father, and is not that original power over all things he has as God, and the Creator of them, which is natural, essential, and underived; but is a derived and delegated power, which he has as Mediator, as subservient to the ends and designs of his office: and as God glorified him as such, by giving him this power; so he glorifies him again, by acknowledging it, and by using it for the end for which it is given: that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him ; eternal life is a gift, and not owing to the merits of men; indeed there is no merit in mens works, no, not in the best; for these are previously due to God, cannot be profitable to him, if done aright, are not done in the creatures strength, but through the grace of God, and bear no proportion to eternal life; which is in Christs gift: not only the promise of it is in him, but that itself; it is put into his hands, and he came into this world, that his people might have it; he has procured it, and has removed what lay in the way of their enjoyment of it; he has a right to bestow it, and their right unto it comes by him, through his blood and righteousness: the persons on whom he confers this gift, are not all men, but such as the Father in the everlasting covenant has given to him, as his people and portion, his spouse and children, his jewels and his treasure, to be saved and enjoyed by him; whom he has chosen and preserved in him, and made his care and charge; to these, and every one of these, Christ gives this great blessing; nor shalt any of them come short of it; and it is for the sake of this, that all creatures and things, all power in heaven and in earth, are given to him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 - Our
    Lord prayed as a man, and as the Mediator of his people; yet he spoke with majesty and authority, as one with and equal to the Father Eternal life could not be given to believers, unless Christ, their Surety, both glorified the Father, and was glorified of him. This is the sinner's way to eternal life, and when this knowledge shall be mad perfect, holiness and happiness will be fully enjoyed. The holiness an happiness of the redeemed, are especially that glory of Christ, and of his Father, which was the joy set before him, for which he endured the cross and despised the shame; this glory was the end of the sorrow of his soul, and in obtaining it he was fully satisfied. Thus we ar taught that our glorifying God is needed as an evidence of our interes in Christ, through whom eternal life is God's free gift.
