         To begin with, we have to acknowledge something that is lost in translation in Paul’s words about having the mind of Christ.  The passage today starts out with the word “If.”  “If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy…”  What do you mean, “if”?  In English, that makes it sound like there […]

“Sir,” the unknown “Greeks” in today’s gospel text say, “We wish to see Jesus.” These seven syllables sound almost like the middle line in a haiku; a weighty, consequential sentence worthy of long meditation. We wish to see Jesus. It’s a beautiful summary of why any of us is here on any given […]

         The whip-wielding Jesus is likely not the image of Christ that rises up in imagination when we need peace and comfort; but here he is, in each of the four gospels.  Jesus has gone up to Jerusalem like the faithful Jew he was, making a pilgrimage during the holy festival of Passover.  He probably knew what to expect in the outer courts of […]
