Faith Matters

May 26, 2019   ·     •   John 13:31-35

This very incident—that Jesus healed a man on a sabbath, which was forbidden by the law; that the man was then caught by the authorities carrying a mat on a sabbath, which was also forbidden; and that, eventually, the man was able to identify Jesus with said authorities—was the beginning of the end of Jesus’ ministry and of his life as an itinerant healer and teacher.
