Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 225

  1. “Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in Him” (John 13:31).

Now we will see Him as He truly is. Now we will recognize that He is God. Now…

What does that mean when the next scene is the crucifixion? Does the cross truly reveal Him as God? For those who scoffed and ridiculed Him, there seems to be little change in their perception. But ultimately for a nearby thief and soldier, the evidence becomes overwhelming. Indeed, Jesus is glorified (made known) in their eyes. But how will they see what so many others fail to observe? Somehow in this moment it seems their eyes are not shielded by pride and self-interest. They are able to see because they are willing and available to see. These are the eyes of simple faith.
