There are many other things that Jesus did …
We stand in the final days of the Easter season. The Lenten-Easter cycle that began with Ash Wednesday in mid-February comes to completion with tomorrow’s Pentecost Sunday. Today we hear the final words of John’s gospel: if all Jesus’ words were written down the world could not contain the books that would be written. There are many other things Jesus did and continues to do in our lives and in the life of the world.
These final words of John’s gospel are in some ways an invitation to us to continue to be a ‘living gospel’ through which others come into contact with the person of Jesus Christ. It is the challenge of allowing Easter to truly come alive in us so that we might be everyday witnesses to the Resurrected Christ.
