All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.
You might see my question about John 12:32 and can probably guess where I am going with this question.
What is meant here? Specifically by the phrase "that the Father gives me"? On the face, it appears as though this verse backs an irresistible grace, but I suppose that depends on what is meant by the Father giving. Is it anyone who responds to a prevenient/pre-regenerate/resistible grace favorably? Or is it those that the Father elected and "sent" irresistible grace to?
Please provide specific evidence/rationale for your answer.
