Unfinished business

John 21:15-19

Chapter 20 of John’s book (covered last week) sounds like a fitting end to the story of Jesus, but here we have a rather strange followup “epilogue” about Jesus and Peter and “the disciple whom Jesus loved”. What is it about? Why is it “tacked on” like this? What does it have to do with us? And should we believe it?

A new dawn

John 20:1-31

“Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.” (John 20:1) What has happened? Follow those early disciples as the truth finally dawns on them!
