Daniel 3:14-20,24-25,28
John 8:31-42 

In much of John’s Gospel Jesus speaks to people who struggle to understand him. He speaks figuratively and his hearers assume he is being concrete. We, however, are so used to quotations from the Gospels and usually can grasp their meaning.

‘If you make my word your home
you will indeed be my disciples,
you will learn the truth
and the truth will make you free.’

From our vantage point, the quotation from today’s Gospel could be seen as the Gospel in microcosm:

inhabit the Scriptures,
grow in discipleship,
learn the truth,
experience freedom.

Our starting place is so clear. Get to know the Scriptures, make them your home and feel at home with them. This is a very personal journey. In every page of the Scriptures God speaks to our hearts.
