Theme: God Encounters us in our Wilderness Wandering Journey

Fourth Sunday of Easter

In today’s readings we hear a statement from Jesus that
many of the Jews who did not believe in Him, hold on to as
a source of blasphemy. Jesus says, “I and the Father are
one”. Jesus never claimed to be equal to His heavenly Father.
But lets all know that they are in agreement, of one
accord.

The apostles set about spreading the “Good News” to all
who would listen. They lived and worked in agreement
following the directions given to them by Jesus before He
ascended back to the Father. Now as then, there are many
of us who need to hear the Good News. Jesus has died,
conquered death, and rose from the dead so that we might
have eternal life.

There are also those who, for whatever motivation you can
imagine, do not want the word of God to be heard. They
present half-truths and outright lies to justify their opposition
to God’s plan for all of humanity. Remember it was
not all the Jews and Gentiles who rallied against the apostles.
It was those who were in power and were abusing
their power and the people.
