11:27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father. 6 No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides 7 to reveal him.
1 tn Grk “At that time, answering, Jesus said.” This construction is somewhat redundant in English and has been simplified in the translation.
2 tn Or “thank.”
3 sn The title Lord is an important name for God, showing his sovereignty, but it is interesting that it comes next to a reference to the Father, a term indicative of God’s care. The two concepts are often related in the NT; see Eph 1:3-6.
4 tn Or “that.”
7 tn Or “wishes”; or “intends”; or “plans” (cf. BDAG 182 s.v. βούλομαι 2.b). Here it is the Son who has sovereignty.
