Say What You Mean

Don’t you ever wish that when the gospel writers quoted Jesus that once, just once, he’d just come out and say things in plain language?

I’m puzzling over chapters 7 and 8 of the Gospel of John. Of course, one of John’s agenda items is to emphasize the conflict that Jesus caused in the Jewish religious community.

But I read Jesus’ words over and over. I’m still confused.

Perhaps that’s the point.

We should work for understanding.
