Commentary on the Gospel of

Bible Diary - CMF


Jesus constantly referred beyond himself.  “I am the gate of the sheepfold,” he once said (Jn 10:7).  A gate is given meaning by what it leads to.  There is something offensive about a locked door, a shuttered window.  We know perfectly well why doors and windows have to prevent access at times, for it is still felt as a sort of reproof.  In an ideal world, doors and windows would always be open!  Jesus is such a door, such a window.  He is the Way to the Father, “he is the image of the invisible God.”
