contain the books that should be written.
“Follow me!”The passage is the last part of John’s gospel. Peter would like to focus on John who reclined close to Jesus at Last Supper. How about him? Will he undergo the same?Jesus’ reply seems to mean it should not be his (Peter’s) con cern. His concern should rather be following Jesus.The last paragraph introdu ces the gospel writer we know as John the Evangelist. He testifies or certifies that everything he has written in the gospel story is true. We understand the truth here as something to do for our salva tion, not so much the accuracy of the data presented. The writer limited his story to just a few episodes on the life of Jesus and that is enough for his audience. The reader or listener will come to know more about Jesus in the process when he is also doing God’s works and dying on his own cross for the love of Jesus.Each Christian should ask, “How about me?” What does Je sus want of me? The answer must be clear: “Follow Jesus.” Follow him as he is described in the gos pel. Therefore we must not stop reading and reflecting the gospel and acting accordingly. © Copyright Bible Diary 2019
