Pentecost 3A; Proper 7; 6/25/2017
There is a tension in the Gospel lesson. Jesus has told us that he and the Father are one; and we are one with them; one body among those who have made the decision to follow him. In the reading today he says that he comes to set father against son – between those who decide to follow, and those who decide not to follow Jesus. This is Jesus’ call to make a decision about what we do about him.
