About Today Readings

Acts 13:26-33. You are my Son; this day I have begotten you – Psalm 2:6-11. John 14:1-6.

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life

How I would have loved to be there to hear Paul preach. He is speaking to Jews about the great changes that have happened through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. At this stage those who came to be called Christians were still part of the Jewish community and Paul always got in touch with the Jewish communities wherever he went. Now everything is different; because of Jesus we can now be called sons and daughters of the Father.

Paul ends by quoting Psalm 2 and we proclaim part of that psalm straight after the first reading. We are now the heirs. As John tells us in the Gospel, Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life and the only way to the Father is through him. We have to become like him to accept our inheritance. We have to trust in God and trust in Jesus.
