Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 197

  1. “the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life” (John 12:25).

Hates his life? Biblically, the idea often translated as the English “hate” means to choose against or turn from. As Jesus is preparing His disciples for the truth of His impending death, He speaks of “hating” His life. In other words, He is choosing from an eternal perspective. He will do what the kingdom of God requires, even though His choice will seemingly cut short life on this earth. That world or this one? This is the question Jesus poses. And His choice is quite clear. Is ours?
