Although the words and message of Jesus was repugnant to some, to others his words were attractive and spirit-filled.
In today’s Gospel he said, “The one who sent me is true, and what I heard from him I tell the world.” Still, they did not realize that the Father had sent him. Jesus made it clear and said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I AM, and that I do nothing on my own, but I say only what the Father taught me. The one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone.”
“Because Jesus spoke this way,” also mentioning that people must have faith in him for the forgiveness of their sins, “Many came to believe in him.”
Today, many people reject the way of Jesus. But, for us, as we listen to his words and message, do we come closer to him in faith?
