“Father, glorify Your name”

JOH 12:27-33

JOH 12:20-23

The hour had come for Jesus to be crucified, die, be raised from the dead, and return to the glory of His Father.

JOH 12:27-28

We saw this when Jesus stood at the tomb of Lazarus. It shows His humanity.

Now, He faces His own impending death.

He will endure all this for the sake of His Father’s name, that He may be glorified.

In the Old Testament, He glorified His name in ways too numerous to mention.

The glory of God is
the revelation of His character and nature to His intelligent creations.

ISA 40:4-5

The gospel of John shows the greatest manifestation of the glory of God: His Son.

JOH 1:14

The Son glorifies the Father by completing the work that He gave Him to perform.

JOH 17:4-5

The glory of the Father and the glory of the Son are inseparable.

JOH 12:29-30

It was a sign for them that God was about to be glorified again.

JOH 12:31-32

These things happened at the perfect time: the precise day and hour chosen by the Father.

They are finished - once and for all.

  1. The judgment of this world.
  2. The casting out of the ruler of this world.
  3. Jesus being lifted up from the earth.
  4. Jesus drawing all men to Himself.

“This world” is the sphere of operations for fallen mankind -

as it lives in hostility to God, doing the works of satan and the flesh.

EPH 2:1-3

This world had
its day of reckoning when Christ died
on the cross.

GAL 6:14

Jesus was victorious over the forces of this world the day He died on the cross.
