How to reseal entry door window?

I have a '73 Amerigo slide in camper, though it seems pretty much all of the campers of this era use the same style of door. The window glass on the entry door fell out about 3 hours after getting the camper home...thing sure didn't waste any time on getting attention from me Thankfully the glass didn't break, though being single pane flat glass, it wouldn't have been a huge deal if it did.

Now, what's the proper way to reinstall/seal this thing. There's plenty of ways I can think of to get it back in the window frame, and keep water out..duct tape not included , but I would rather do it the "right" way...except that I'm not sure what that would be.

At the moment I have it held in with 3M Temflex tape (similar to vinyl electrical tape), which is working surprisingly well, and what the wide black strips are on the back side of the door.

I was thinking of cleaning all the old sealant off the glass, and inside the window frame. Put the glass back in, and seal it off with some silicone caulking. But the old sealant appears to have wrapped around both sides of the window somehow, and I'm not sure how I would do that.
