Daily Word Of God

Luke 9:7-9

Herod the tetrarch had heard about all that was going on; and he was puzzled, because some people were saying that John had risen from the dead, others that Elijah had reappeared, still others that one of the ancient prophets had come back to life.

But Herod said, ‘John? I beheaded him. So who is this I hear such reports about?’ And he was anxious to see him.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • In living our Christian faith, there will be times when we hear conflicting and confusing information and views about Jesus and His Teachings.


  • We should strive to deepen our faith in the Lord by developing a meaningful prayer and Sacramental life and living our faith concretely daily. Through these ways of living, our love for the Lord will be built on solid grounds.


  • However, if we do not deepen our faith seriously and daily, then like King Herod, we may easily be confused and shaken about our faith in the Lord.
