CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
All things are delivered unto me of my Father - This is a great truth, and the key of the science of salvation. The man Christ Jesus receives from the Father, and in consequence of his union with the eternal Godhead becomes the Lord and sovereign Dispenser of all things.

The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands.
but I know him because I am from him and he sent me."
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father--and I lay down my life for the sheep.
Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;
For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him.
