To Hear and to Proclaim

A man with a speech impediment is brought to Jesus for healing. What Jesus does is to open up the ears of the man so that he could speak.

Lord, To Whom Shall We Go?

The last section of John 6 and that of the Living Bread Discourse is the account of the judgment that occurs on the disciples.

However, it is presented in such a way that anyone hearing it read would be reminded of the Eucharist, the daily breaking of the bread.
