Jesus speaks with the Jews at the Temple

In reflecting on this descriptive passage from John (10:22-30), Fr Paul reminds us that Jesus is very different from what the Jews expected the promised Messiah to be.

It is worth remembering, he says, that not too long after this these same Jews were getting ready to stone Jesus.

In simple terms, Jesus says to the Jews listen to my words, look at what I do and this should prove to you that I am the one – the Messiah.

Through Jesus, we are cared for and, if we have faith and allow him to guide us, we gain eternal life.
