Jesus affirms the doctrine of election…

Jesus was affirming the great truth of the doctrine of election: when the Father chooses, the Father teaches; when the Father teaches, they learn; when they learn, they’re drawn; when they’re drawn, they come; when they come, Jesus receives them; when He receives them, He keeps them; when He keeps them, He raises them to eternal life. And then the Father’s purpose is accomplished.

John MacArthur, from Hard to Believe, p. 175
