20 “I am not asking on behalf of these alone, but also for those who believe in Me through their word,21 that they may all be one; just 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.
Disciples’ Future Glory
22 The glory which You have given Me I also have given to them, so 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 You loved them, just as You 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 “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 previously were far away [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 [e]in His flesh the hostility, which isthe Law composed of commandments expressed in ordinances, so that in Himself He might [f]make the two one new person, in this way establishing peace;16 and that He might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, [g]by it having put to death the hostility.17 And He came and preached peace to you who were far away, and peace to those who were near;18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
