I am pleased to see the amount of traffic and response that this little site is generating. I hope it continues to grow. I also realize that this depends on how faithfully I keep posting… That being said, I’m enjoying the discipline of keeping things running.
It seems to me that the commitment that has been best embraced is the reading of the Gospel of John. It would be great to hear from each other what we are learning from the experience. I appreciate Roy’s recent comment:
“I have completed the Gospel of John. What struck me is the number of times that Jesus says, ‘I tell you the truth.’ When you listen to the entire book…this line just jumps out at you time and time again. He of all [people] here on earth, prefacing his comments with, “I tell you the truth” seems ironic to me. Did anyone else note something special??”
What I have noticed is how many times Jesus has to resist arrest by the religious authorities. Again and again he has to withdraw from where he is, avoid certain places, or simply walk away because they want him dead. The amazing grace, mercy and presence of Jesus is such a threat to the establishment.
What have you noticed? Let’s hear from each other!
