Bible Notes

John’s 21:24-25 (20.04.18)

John 21:24-25
24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true. 25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

I love these closing words of John’s, a very human touch. I’m also taken by the reminder at the end that there is more to Jesus than we can ever fully capture. It is one of the biggest challenges that we face as disciples, that of not thinking we’ve got him sussed. Thinking this way means that we run the risk of missing out when he does something beyond our expectation as he do often is described as doing in the Gospels.

Spirit, give me an open mind and an open heart.
