Commentary on the Gospel of

Bible Diary - CMF


This passage is a cluster of phrases that express the deepest intimacy; it is impassioned love-language:  one, in me, as we are one, one in us, you in me, with me, where I am, that I may be in them… it could be the language of any young man or woman ablaze with love.  But it is the language of Jesus speaking with his Father and drawing us with him into the intimacy of their love.  Shout it from the rooftops:  our God speaks our language!  Our God knows and shares our feelings!  Our God’s name is Immanuel, “God with us!”
