Reformation Study Bible – John 17:3
John 17:3

17:3 that they know you . . . and Jesus Christ. Life consists in fellowship with God “who created us for Himself, so that our soul is restless unless it finds its rest in Him,” as Augustine expressed it. Knowledge, here as so often in Scripture, means more than mere intellectual grasp; it involves affection and commitment as well. By placing Himself and the Father together as the source of eternal life, Christ affirms His own deity. See “True Knowledge of God” at Jer. 9:24.
