A Glimpse Behind the Veil - Part 2
John 17:1-5

OVERVIEW

This series gives us a glimpse into the prayer life of Jesus. At His lowest point, facing His trial and the cross, Jesus soars into the heavenlies and prays for His disciples and, yes, even for us. This message is a continuation of our last glimpse behind the veil as we started to examine what Jesus prayed regarding His glory and the glory of the Father.

For further study, this series is available online at sherwoodbaptist.net/messages.
