David Miller – Christ is Prays for His Followers (John 17)

John 17:6-8

6 “I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.
7 Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you.
8 For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me.

Theology

Plurality of Godhead – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Anthropology

Christology – Son, Ancient of Days, No Beginning or End
