This is the second half of last week’s reading. Here, Jesus’ community becomes enraged at his challenging words. Which of Jesus’ teachings stretch your understanding of who God is and how God operates? Are there any biblical passages that make you angry? What about them bothers you?
This week, challenge yourself to explore a difficult passage from the other side. Looking at it from a perspective different than the one you normally would, what insights do you gain? In prayer, ask the Spirit to guide you in your understanding of Jesus’ teachings and what they mean in your life.
