Saying ‘Yes!’ to a passionate Jesus: report of Duncan’s sermon on John 2:13-25

Duncan spoke this morning on John 2:13-25. He began by putting the passage in its context. John’s gospel as a whole, he reminded us, was written to encourage our belief in Jesus as we read, hear, listen attentively, and believe. Last week, we reflected on the first miraculous sign Jesus gave pointing to his identity as the long-awaited Messiah: he transformed water into wine at a wedding at Cana (John 2:1-12) Today the scene shifts from a rural

Jesus knows us better than we know ourselves
John at Cromarty

Just reading the Bible passages for Sunday’s service. Lots of stuff to think about with regard to keeping the church God-focussed, and about ‘when it’s right to be angry.’  But what struck me was John 2:24,25 – ‘Jesus …. knew all people…..he knew what was in each person.’ Jesus was so perceptive, so attuned to what was going on in the people he met that he discerned their hearts. He knew their motives, their fears, their hopes.
