Easter - Hope of New Life - 5 Apr 15
Fr Jude Shayo, AJ
The climax of the Easter gospel and the essence of its implications for us lie in the statement "he saw and believed.” Coming to believe in the Risen Lord is the purpose and the point of the entire gospel: "Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of [his] disciples that are not written in this book. But these are written that you may [come to] believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through this belief you may have life in his name” (John 20: 30–31). John wants us to identify with the two disciples of John the Baptist who ask Jesus, "Where are you staying?” He also wants us to identify with the "beloved disciple” who runs to see where Jesus is so that we, like him, will see and come to believe. The end of John's gospel begins our encounter with the Risen Lord.
