#GospelToday (Jn 13:16-20)
"Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him.
If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it.
I am not speaking of all of you. I know those whom I have chosen. But so that the scripture might be fulfilled, 'The one who ate my food has raised his heel against me.'
From now on I am telling you before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe that I AM.
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me."
@George "The one who ate my food has raised his heel against me." What does that mean?
Does this have a negative impact on the desire to receive the Eucharist daily? "Heal against me." Have I turned on God in some way? Am on running away from God? What am I running towards? Money, Career, social ambitions? Or God, Jesus Christ, Family and Community? Does Jesus light up my home and the city I live in?
"...he said, 'I am the light of the world..." (John 8:12)
Am I running the race? "... I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. (Acts 20:24).
"Amen, amen, whoever receives the one I send receives me..."
Again! "raised his heel against me."??? What does that mean? Am I leaning against Him?
***Can someone explain this verse to me???
In John 13:18 "raised his heel against me" is in reference to the blessing given in John 13:17, excluding our Lord's betrayer from the blessing.
