    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:6

    ¶ He manifestado tu Nombre a los hombres que del mundo me diste; tuyos eran, y me los diste, y guardaron tu palabra.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 17:6

    Verse 6. I have manifested thy name] efanerwsa, I have brought it into
    light, and caused it to shine in itself, and to illuminate others. A little of the Divine nature was known by the works of creation; a little more was known by the Mosaic revelation: but the full manifestation of God, his nature, and his attributes, came only through the revelation of Christ.

    The men which thou gavest me] That is, the apostles, who, having received this knowledge from Christ, were, by their preaching and writings, to spread it through the whole world.

    Out of the world] From among the Jewish people; for in this sense is the word kosmov to be understood in various parts of our Lord's last discourses.

    Thine they were] Objects of thy choice; and thou gavest them to me from among this very unbelieving people, that they might be my disciples and the heralds of my salvation.

    And they have kept thy word.] Though their countrymen have rejected it; and they have received me as thy well beloved Son in whom thou delightest.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. I have manifested thy name , etc.] Not the Nomen Tetragrammaton, the name of four letters, the name Jehovah, and which the Jews call Shemhamphorash, and say is ineffable, and to be pronounced by Adonai; who also speak of other names, and say f639 , truly the former wise men had holy names, which they received from the prophets, as the name of seventy two letters, and the name of forty two letters, and the name of twelve letters, and many other holy names; and by which they could do new signs and wonders in the world; but they did not make use of them, only in case of necessity, as in a time of persecution and distress.

    The name of twelve letters, Galatinus pretends, is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, the words for which in the Hebrew language consist of twelve letters; and that of forty two letters he makes to be this, the Father God, the Son God, the Holy Ghost God, yet there are not three Gods, but one God; or thus, the Father God, the Son God, the Holy Ghost God, three in one, one in three; the Hebrew words for which contain forty two letters; but the authorities by which he would support all this are insufficient.

    However, it is none of these names, nor any other scriptural ones, that are here meant; but either God himself, or the perfections of his nature, or his will of command, or rather his Gospel; unless Christ himself, or his name Jesus, God by the angel gave him, and in whose name there is salvation, and no other can be thought to be meant; and which, as it was manifested to his disciples, so it is to all whom God has chosen and given to Christ: unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world ; which is to be understood, not merely of their being given to him as apostles, nor of their being given and brought to him in the effectual calling only, but of an eternal act of Gods in election, and in the covenant of grace; when these persons were given to Christ as his spouse, his spiritual seed and offspring, the sheep of his pasture, and his portion and inheritance, to be saved and preserved by him; which as it is an instance of love and care on Gods part to give, and of grace and condescension on Christs to receive, so of distinguishing goodness, to the persons given; since not all the world, but some of it, share in this favour: thine they were, and thou gavest them me ; the persons given were not the Fathers merely by creation; for so others are his also; nor would they be peculiarly his, for they are the sons likewise in this sense; but they are his by electing grace, which is the peculiar act of the Father in Christ, and is unto salvation by him, through the sanctification of the Spirit; these are chosen to be his peculiar people, and given to Christ as such: and they have kept thy word ; the Gospel, not only in their memories, but in their hearts; and having publicly professed it, they defended it valiantly against the enemies of it, and kept it pure and incorrupt; this shows that the Gospel is meant by the name of God manifested to these persons.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-10 - Christ prays for those that are his. Thou gavest them me, as sheep to the shepherd, to be kept; as a patient to the physician, to be cured as children to a tutor, to be taught: thus he will deliver up his charge. It is a great satisfaction to us, in our reliance upon Christ that he, all he is and has, and all he said and did, all he is doin and will do, are of God. Christ offered this prayer for his people alone as believers; not for the world at large. Yet no one who desire to come to the Father, and is conscious that he is unworthy to come in his own name, need be discouraged by the Saviour's declaration, for he is both able and willing to save to the uttermost, all that come unt God by him. Earnest convictions and desires, are hopeful tokens of work already wrought in a man; they begin to evidence that he has bee chosen unto salvation, through sanctification of the Spirit and belie of the truth. They are thine; wilt thou not provide for thine own? Wil thou not secure them? Observe the foundation on which this plea is grounded, All mine are thine, and thine are mine. This speaks the Father and Son to be one. All mine are thine. The Son owns none for his, that are not devoted to the service of the Father.
