What are Christians praying when they pray the Lords Prayer, and what relationship does it have with Jesus own context? Jeffrey B. Gibson disputes the view that Jesus prayer was derived from Jewish synagogal prayers. Understanding its intent requires understanding Jesus purpose in calling disciples as witnesses against this generation. In context, the prayer was not eschatological and was not aimed at calling down into the present the realities of the age to come. Rather, it was meant to protect disciples from the temptations of their age.
