I'm trying to read through the Book of John this week. I like to read books (of the Bible) in one sitting when possible, although with a couple kids, that's tough. But I've read through 13 chapters so far today, and while many, Many things seem to jump out at you, when you read straight through, one in particular caught my attention. Jesus makes no bones about Who He Is. Which I found undeniably fascinating, because I hear it said so much (like on the History Channel) how Jesus simply wanted to be seen as a very good man and nothing else.
These people clearly never read the book of John.
Jesus, at least from John's prospective, seems to weave it into every conversation He has with anybody. Multiple times, people try to stone Jesus, but He slips away, because it wasn't God's time. Amazing book, truly.
I plan to finish reading it now, if I can, and since I'm home taking care of Sarah and the boys, I may watch The Passion of the Christ tomorrow night instead of Maundy Thursday services...not as entertainment: it's just not that kind of movie. (I remember seeing it in the theatre and finding the purchase of popcorn...bothersome?)
God bless this weekend, and however you commemorate this weekend, make sure you do it in remembrance of Him.
