Q: #401. How many times did Jesus give thanks to the Father?
By: Steve Shirley
A: I find 5 times in the Gospels where Jesus gave thanks to the Father in prayer:
1. (Mt 11:25)(Lk 10:21) When He said: "I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes."
2. (Jn 6:11) Before feeding the 5000.
3. (Jn 11:41) Before raising Lazarus from the dead.
4. / 5. (Lk 22:17,19) Before drinking the wine, and again before eating the bread at the Last Supper.
