20 “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word;21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may [a]believe that You sent Me.
Their Future Glory
22 The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected [b]in unity, so that the world may [c]know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.24 Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
25 “O righteous Father, [d]although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me;26 and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”
Ephesians 2:13-18New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off [a]have been brought near [b]by the blood of Christ.14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the [c]barrier of the dividing wall,15 [d]by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which isthe Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might [e]make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace,16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, [f]by it having put to death the enmity.17 AndHe came and preachedpeace to you who werefar away, and peace to those who werenear;18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
