I was reading john 10 yesterday and would like to know who people here on this board think Jesus was praying for in the Garden? I know many "calvinists" quote the verse where Jesus says He prays "not for the world but for the onesyou have given me" as a proof text for election. I do not think it is, if you read the entire prayer it seems to me that he is praying for his disciples, and that they will be protected in His abscence. What does everyone here think? Let me make it clear that I too believe in the Five points and the Doctrine of grace. I just do not think this particular place applies as a proof text for the U.
