Thoughts on the Gospel of John (92)

Then after this he said to the disciples, Let us go to Judea again. The disciples said to him, Rabbi, lately the Jews sought to stone you, and are you going there again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.
John 11:7-10.

Thoughts on the Gospel of John (92)
The Jews' intention was to arrest Jesus, but He had gone over the Jordan, "where John was baptising at first" (ch. 10:40). It may have been Bethabara (cf. ch. 1:28), where Jesus received the news of Lazarus.

When the Lord told the disciples that He would return to Judea, they were afraid for Him. Didn't He know the Jews' murderous hatred better than they? Had He forgotten that they had repeatedly tried to stone Him?

We cannot always fathom the ways of the Son of God. On the one hand there were the sisters anxiously waiting for Him, but He failed to come. On the other hand the fearful disciples were glad to be away from the danger zone, but now the Lord wished to return there.

The Lord explained His intention in parabolic form. For Him it was day, not night. So He had to carry out the will and the works of His heavenly Father (cf. ch. 9:49). He had now received the command to raise Lazarus. No-one could therefore restrain Him.

We too often regard only the external circumstances and stumble and fall. Our ways seems dark and uncertain. We shall get light for our pathway only when we look to Christ and live according to His will.

(to be continued next Sunday)

Today's reading: Lamentations 3:52-4:6 · Psalms 45:1-10

FALSE PROPHETS AND THEIR PROPHECIES-THE FALSE PROPHET


And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the...More

EVERYONE NEEDS A MIRACLE

Some years ago, I was invited to be the guest speaker at a garden party in an exclusive, highbrow residential area. Because I arrived at the venue quite early, I was made to sit for a while in the house of my host. The house was an exquisite parade of wealth and splendour. I had never seen such brazen display of...More

PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS

Read:
that when he cried to the Lord, the Lord healed him. This is another testimony of someone who believed in the God that answers prayers. May prayer for someone using this devotional is that as you cry unto God today, He will answer you as He answered Hannah, Jabez and Elijah in Jesus'...More

The bankruptcy that saves

None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him - for the redemption of their souls is costly, and it shall cease for ever.

You were not redeemed with silver or gold from your aimless conduct but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and...More
