When I am lifted up
From the earth,
κἀγὼ ἐὰν ὑψωθῶ ἐκ τῆς γῆς, πάντας ἑλκύσω πρὸς ἐμαυτόν.
Then John uniquely indicated that Jesus said that if or when he (κἀγὼ) was lifted up (ἐὰν ὑψωθῶ) from the earth (ἐκ τῆς γῆς), he would draw or drag (ἑλκύσω) all people (πάντας) to him (πρὸς ἐμαυτόν). Obviously, this is a reference to the future crucifixion of Jesus. By being raised up on the cross, he would bring salvation to the whole world. The gospel would be spread to the whole world. He would draw them to himself. This was also the theme of the “Suffering Servant” in Isaiah, chapters 52-53. Do you feel drawn to Jesus?
