The distress of Jesus and glorifying of God

John 12:26-30..27 “Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”

 Jesus began His Holy week with Palm Sunday when He made the triumphant entry into Jerusalem on a donkey. The Pharisees were disappointed for they were expecting the Messiah to arrive on a white horse as a Victor. AA

 The soul of Jesus was troubled because He knew the hour would soon come for His crucifixion. He ask if the Father could save Him from this hour, but then answered that He came for this hour and may the Father’s name be glorified. Then the Father spoke from heaven; “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”

 God spoke from heaven at His baptism at the start of His Ministry. God spoke a second time on the mount of transfiguration and now a third time near the crisis of the crucifixion. God was talking about His name being glorified in the wilderness by the victory of Jesus over Satan. A His name would be glorified again by the victory of Jesus over Satan on the cross B and again after the 2nd coming. C, D

Victories of Jesus over Satan brings glory to God.
