“Will you also go away?”

In 06 Conclusion on 2012/02/05 at 9:11 AM

At Cana, Jesus turned water into quality wine; later, he multiplied the loaves and fishes. Both miracles showing his divine power over matter.

Jesus explicitly revealed the great mystery of the Eucharist. The realism about His works cannot be interpreted in a figurative way.  The discourse found in chapter 6 of John makes no sense at all if Christ is not really present under the species of bread and wine.

Christʼs hearers understood perfectly that He said what He meant and meant what he was saying. meant exactly what He was saying.  The did not view it as His speaking metaphorically, figuratively or symbolically.  Jesus reaffirmed and confirmed what they had understood clearly: that is was necessary for them to receive Him in order to share in His divine life.

Jesus required His disciple to accept His words because it is He who has spoken them. “And who do you say that I am?”  The power that enabled Him to perform such an action is the same power by which Almighty God created everything out of nothing.  With the assistance of grace, we are inspired to believe: we make a spiritual act of faith and believe what he reveals as true because as God He has the authority to reveal.

Christ came to teach the Truth; He is THE Truth, THE way, and THE life.  His whole life was that of a teacher who not only continually teaches but whose teachings save, sanctify, guides, additionally moving and forgiving.  He did not invent anything.  His teaching is divine. The Father has revealed it to Him and because He is true God and true man, He speaks with authority.  Augustine tells us: “Listen to the Son Himself: ‘I and the Father are one.’ Jesus revealed that He and the Father are one in substance.  Christ, the Word Incarnate, is one with the Father.  He reflects the glory of God. (Heb)

Many, but not all of his hearers rejected Christ revelation of the mystery of the Incarnate God, refusing to examine the proof Jesus offered them.  What about you?   Will you walk away or will you assent believing on the Word of His revealing; He can neither deceive nor be deceived?
