My daughter is studying biblical exegesis at Wheaton College. This is an excerpt from a paper she wrote, quoted with permission. JW
But the Father’s love for the Son is boundlessly trusting and generous. He gave all things into Jesus’ hand (John 3: 35). Everything was handed to Jesus and entrusted in His care. Nebulae, neutrinos, neurotic individuals, every thought ever thought, every word ever uttered, every book and beetle, and the entire coverlet of the sky. There is not a single person alive to whom I would be willing to give everything I loved and to fully entrust with everything I cared about. Fortunately, God is incredibly different from me. He does know how to love in the extravagant, scandalous way that gives away it all. The amazing thing is that Jesus loved us in the same way His father loved Him. The manifestations and implications of this are elusive.
Paradoxically, even though the Father gave Jesus all things, Jesus was unable to act as an autonomous agent. He could do nothing individualistic, but only what He saw His Father do (John 5: 19). Jesus stated that he could do nothing on His own, but He was not puny and powerless (John 5: 30). He was able to raise the dead with His voice. He was able to create new life (v. 22). He was given all authority to execute judgment on us mortals (v. 27). He told a man who had been sick and helpless for 38 years to get up, pick up his bed, and walk; and the man was instantaneously healed. It was through Jesus’ dependence, obedience, and humility, that He received all glory and dominion (Philippians 2: 6-11).
