Verse Before the Gospel

The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sower; all who come to him will live for ever.


A Gospel according to Jn 8:21-30

Jesus said to the Pharisees: “I am going away and you will look for me, but you will die in your sin. Where I am going you cannot come.” So the Jews said, “He is not going to kill himself, is he, because he said, ‘Where I am going you cannot come’?” He said to them, “You belong to what is below, I belong to what is above. You belong to this world, but I do not belong to this world. That is why I told you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I AM, you will die in your sins.” So they said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “What I told you from the beginning. I have much to say about you in condemnation. But the one who sent me is true, and what I heard from him I tell the world.” They did not realize that he was speaking to them of the Father. So Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I AM, and that I do nothing on my own, but I say only what the Father taught me. The one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, because I always do what is pleasing to him.” Because he spoke this way, many came to believe in him.


REFLECTION

"The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sower; all who come to him will live for ever."


Have you joined a Bible Study group? Do you read the Sacred Scriptures?

There are many quotes that describe the Sacred Scriptures also known as the Bible.


These descriptions tell us about the power that lies in the Word of God. Here are some examples: "The Seed is the word of God...(Luke 8:13); The Word of God is a two-edged sword...(Hebrews 4:12)"; "the Word is a lamp for my feet..(Psalm 119:105)"; "The Word of God is alive and active. (Hebrews 4:12)"; "...the Word of our God endures forever. (Isaiah 40:8)".


The most important value of the Word of God is that reading, listening, and studying it brings you into a personal relationship with the Word, Himself, Jesus Christ.


How do you get to know someone? You make contact with them by talking to them and listening to them, you have a conversation with them. Eventually, you may even share intimate feelings and thoughts and be in communion with them.


Come to PAPA's FACE ZBS, Face-to-Face ZOOM Bible Study held on Wednesdays. Father Michael J. Truongluan Nguyen, C.Ss.R., a theologian, will help guide us in learning the Biblical Context of Jesus' words. See and listen for yourself. Here is a recording of one of our ZBS sessions.
