Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentJohn 17:2
- Authority over all flesh (exousian pashv sarkov).
- Sarkov is objective genitive. Stupendous claim impossible for a mere man to make. Made already in Matthew 11:27; Luke 10:22 (Q, the Logia of Jesus, our earliest known document about Jesus) and repeated in Matthew 28:18 after his resurrection.
- That (ina).
- Secondary purpose with ina dwsei (future active indicative) carrying on the idea of ina doxashi. See 13:34; 17:21 for ina, katws, ina.
- Whatsoever (pan o).
- A peculiar classical Greek idiom, the collective use of the singular pan o as in 6:37,39 and o in 17:24 and the nominative absolute (nom. pendens) with autoiv (to them), the dative plural explaining the construction. See Robertson, Grammar, p. 653.
