As Jesus approached Jerusalem on that first Palm Sunday, many people had gathered on the roadside to welcome him. Many of these had no doubt witnessed his healing, and listened to his preaching, but some perhaps were there to have a glimpse of this man who had been causing a stir by his radical teaching. As crowds go this would not have been much different from any other crowd then and ever since. John’s gospel specific...

This week in our gospel reading Nicodemus comes to Jesus as an owner, supervisor and gatekeeper of Israel’s religion. He doesn't own the religious tradition but he’s certainly one of its chief stewards – one of its guarantors, one of its border guards. Israel’s religion is his baby. He comes to Jesus expressing both a genuine interest and at the same time a guarded caution about what Jesus is doing. We think you’re one...

Temptation, confession, repentance, and forgiveness—or resisting temptation from the start? As we begin our Lenten journey these are the things that we are asked to think about. In our reading this week from Matthew’s gospel we learn that even the most intense temptations were resisted by Jesus.
