Argument : Jesus has revealed the Father to the disciples, the ones given to him by the Father out of world (6). They belonged to the Father and the Father gave them to the Son and therefore the ones given kept Jesus' word, responded in faith and obedience to the gospel (ie Mat 3 repent and believe; bear fruit keeping with repentance). The result of this is that the now know that Jesus come from God as the Messiah who is the Son of God sent on mission (because he has given them the words/truth Father given the Son) (7-8). Furthermore, Jesus prays for two reasons, for those specifically his own, those given to him by Father, united by faith to both the Father and the Son. It is through this union that Jesus is glorified by their faith in him and his work on their behalf and the fruit of faith, receiving and keeping his word. And secondly, Jesus is leaving them and returning to the Father in his victorious ascension (9-11c). Thus, Jesus now prays first request to the Father, that he keep secure those given in his name so that they may have unity as the Father and Son does - relational unity and purpose in mission, Father Sent Son because he is returning to the Father. While Jesus was with them he kept those given in Father's name so that none lost except the one foreordained to do so (11d-13). When Jesus is gone, it is the Spirit who keeps the given ones secure. But not now that Son is returning to the Father, he speaks these words/truths during his earthly ministry that they might experience the fullness of joy. This joy is the eternal joy of the Father and the Son, is the result of receiving the word, truth or content of gospel truth. The keeping is now described as keeping them from the evil one (14-16). Finally, Son's second request is that they are sanctified in the truth/word because Father's word is true. In other words, as the son was sent into the world with the mission to represent/reveal/manifest the Father to the world in his so Son sneds the given ones into the world to carry on his mission. Jesus God the Son Set himself apart so that they may be set apart for the mission (17-19). Question: What does in your name mean? Question: How is the son glorified in the given ones? I think it is by means of the union that they believe in Him as the Son and the fruit of faith, receiving and keeping the word. Question: What does sanctify mean? I am included to see it as set apart for the mission as that seems to be the flow of Jesus prayer here. The keeping and the giving and knowing center around who Jesus is and what he has come to do, reveal the Father. Question: Still not certain how 13-16 relate to one another.

Topic - Jesus prays for continuing of his mission thru disciples Exegetical idea: Jesus prays for his disciples to be kept Faithful to Him and faithful to carry on his mission Subject: How does Jesus pray for his own? Complement: 1. Jesus has manifested the Father to the disciples given to the Son a. Given to the Son as evidenced by thier faithfulness to word b. They know Jesus Sent Son c. Jesus prays for his own: First, they are given to him by Father and now united to the Father and the Son Second, He is leaving and returning to the Father 2. Jesus asks the Father to To keep/guard the given ones in your name that they be one a. Unity of disciepls based on unity of Father and son: relational and missional b. The Son guarded them so none were lost/ fell away expcet the one destined to do so c. Son spoke truth/word to give them the fullness of joy/eternal life d. Son asks not to remove them from world/mission but to protect from evil one 3. The Given ones Set apart for mission a. The disciples are sent by Son to continue his mission as Son sent by Father on mission b. The son set himself apart for mission so that the disciples be set part for mission Homiletical Idea: Subject: What the test is asking in more generalized form? Complement: the answer in a more generalized form. Preaching Idea - pithy statement describes my big idea Purpose - the purpose of the sermon Functional Question --
As I was working on my outline yesterday I changed my arc (not repost). I shifted the 9-11c arc to 11d-19 as Jesus says he is praying for them for two reasons, given to him and he is leaving (ID) and then gives the two requests, keep them and sanctify them (Exp).  The only issue is that they verb praying (pres act) and the verbs in the request keep (aor act) not match. Thoughts?
Joey Karrigan
That is an interesting change. I think I like it. I also noticed that you could pair 9a "I am praying for them" (Jesus's action) with his request to the Father in 11d "Keep them." And then you could pair his leaving 13a with his next request in 17a, "Sanctify them." In some sense, he is praying THAT his disciples be kept but his prayer is the means by which they are kept, for he prays to the Father who sovereignly works all things. Then, he is leaving, "coming to you" (13a) and so he asks the Father not to take them out of the world, but to sanctify them. I'm not very confident about the change, but I think there is something compelling to re-arcing it in this way.

Regarding your question about the verbs matching, verb tenses don't need to match. Present tense and aorist tense have different functions. The present aspect is manifests the current and ongoing nature of the verb, whereas the aorist, perfective aspect describes the action as a whole. Scholars believe that a present imperative makes a request to do something which has not yet been done, whereas an aorist imperative requests something to be done WITH URGENCY that may already be in progress (Wallace, Beyond the Basics, 720-21). I'm not sure how much weight to put on that, but the difference in aspect between the verbs poses no problem in your new arc of the text.

Exegetical idea: Jesus prays for his disciples to be kept Faithful to Him and faithful to carry on his mission
Perhaps your exegetical idea could also be expressed in this manner: "Jesus prays for his disciples to be kept faithful to him SO THAT they may be faithful to carry on his mission." That's how I think I'm seeing the relationship between the two. 

But then again, being faithful in the obedience of mission is also the same thing as being faithful to God in Christ. So, in a sense, the former empowers the latter, but also the obedience of one is contained and bound up in obedience in the other. 
I like that.  Thanks
Joey Karrigan
David, this looks good. I think the same idea is at the bottom of Jesus's disciples being kept "faithful to him" and "faithful in mission," which is knowing God and loving him. In other words, I think "faithful to him" is equivalent to the idea of "relational unity," which is unity by the Spirit of love. Those who are united to one another are united to one another in love, and so "being one" is delighting one in another just as the Father and the Son have for all of eternity. We as Jesus's disciples are brought into that. And secondly, being "faithful in mission" relates to being "faithful to him" because God's mission is to bring the rest of his sons and daughters into unity with him, into the love with which he loves the Son, the fullness of joy and eternal life promised to all those who believe in Jesus. 

I think emphasizing the two points in your exegetical idea is good. They are distinct. I also think showing the relationship and correlation ship between the two points is also good, because at the bottom they are in fact related. Union with Christ is the origin, engine, and end of all mission/holiness in Christians in the world.
