The Gospel of John / The Mystery and Images of Jesus
We will be using 3 chapters of Jean Vanier book “Drawn into the Mystery of Jesus through the Gospel of John”. (The book is NOT required for the class.)
“The message of this gospel is simple. It is about being chosen to become a friend of Jesus. It is about mutual presence and learning from each other. To live as Jesus lived and to love and he loved.”— Jean Vanier

How do we react to love?
Read John 13:12-38
Peter, Judas and the “beloved disciple”: three men who react in different ways to Jesus’ love. Judas rejects and fears love. He pushes Jesus away. Peter cannot understand Jesus. He loves Jesus but wants to do things his own way. The beloved disciple surrenders to Jesus’ love and becomes his intimate friend. These three attitudes are in each one of us at different moments of our lives.
