DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Miracles – Unbelief: In today’s Gospel, the Jews fetched stones to stone Jesus for blasphemy for proclaiming that He is the Son of God.  Ponder on, “There are infinite number of ‘miracles’ that show God’s Almighty Power, Perfection and Love.  Are we deepening our faith daily or are we taking God’s Goodness for granted?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 10:31-38

The Jews fetched stones to stone him, so Jesus said to them, ‘I have done many good works for you to see, works from my Father; for which of these are you stoning me?’ The Jews answered him, ‘We are not stoning you for doing a good work, but for blasphemy: you are only a man and you claim to be God.’

Jesus answered: ‘Is it not written in your Law: I said, you are gods? So the Law used the word gods of those to whom the word of God was addressed, and scripture cannot be rejected. Yet to someone whom the Father has consecrated and sent into the world, “You are blaspheming” because he says, “I am the Son of God.” If I am not doing my Father’s work, there is no need to believe me; but if I am doing it, then even if you refuse to believe in me, at least believe in the work I do; then you will know for sure that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.’
