Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

Our Gospel Reading today presents us with John’s version of the very familiar story of the cleansing of the temple when Jesus turns over the tables of the moneychangers and chases them out of the temple. We know the story well and we know that in it Jesus claims that He would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, referring to His death and resurrection. The people did not understand that until after His resurrection. There is, however, a very unique ending to the story in John’s version that is often overlooked because we focus on the moneychangers. John tells us that Jesus did not trust Himself to anyone because He knew well human nature, as He understood it well. This is a very interesting statement in John’s Gospel as his main focus was on reminding us of Jesus’ divinity. This particular passage can be viewed in two ways. The first is that Jesus understood human nature well because He as God created human beings and He understands our nature better than we do! But it also can be interpreted in a way that suggests that Jesus understood human nature because He Himself had taken on human nature and was living it! Thus, in these two short sentences, John teaches that Jesus was and is both God and Human! Oh the subtleties and intricacies of the Scriptures! We need to always ask the Holy Spirit to be with us and enlighten us we read Scripture! We will be surprised by what God has waiting for us in His Word if we just take the time to pray with it! It is often outside the major events in Scripture that we find the amazing insights about God’s awesomeness! 

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
