The lesson on September 20, 2020 was part 14 of "John's Gospel" study. This week, Wayne takes us through the prayer the Jesus makes to the Father in chapter 17 of John. We have learned that there is a parenthesis between chapter 13 and 17, where in 13:1-3 the theme is commenced the "hour has come". Then in John 13:4 thru 16:33 the parenthesis consists of the disciples being instructed, encouraged and prepared and then in 17:1 the "hour has come" theme is resumed. We has seen a similar parenthesis in Ephesians 3:1-13 is a parenthesis of thought between the prayer of the Apostle PAul. The Scripture reading was from John 17:24-26 KJV

This study was given by Pastor Clifford McLain from May 22, 1986 through August 1, 1986 covering the subject of prophecy in our time. The motivation from scripture is found in 1 Timothy 4:1-6; 13 which reads "1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. 6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained... 13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine."
