The Testimony of Scripture
Finally, for our purposes, it would be remiss not to mention the centrality of love to the Father - Son unity for which Jesus prayed for those who believe in his name (17:26). Love is what characterises the trinitarian relationship between the Father and the Son, between the Son and the world, and between the Father and the world. Earlier in the Gospel, Jesus had said ' By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another (13:35). Failure to demonstrate such love to the world betrays or winess to nonbelievers.
On the other hand, the loving unity that should bind believers together in Jesus is precisely the testimony by which other realise God’s love for them.171
