We pick up the narrative right before Jesus was betrayed at Gethsemane, He had gone off privately to pray in John 17: 1-3: “Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven and said:’Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son,that Your Son also may glorify You, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.'” Throughout the Gospel of John, Jesus referred to the Cross as His “hour”. The time for Him to die had arrived. Jesus was asking that His mission to the world would be made known through the Cross. God would provide forgiveness of sins and give eternal life to all those who believe in the Son
