“Jesus said to the Pharisees; “I am going away you will look for me and you will die in your sin. Where I am going you cannot come.”  The Jews said to one another, “Will he kill himself?  Is that what he means by saying  Where I am going you cannot come?”  Jesus went on: “You are from below I am from above.  You are of this world; I am not of this world. I have told you already: you will die in your sins. Yes, if you do not believe I am He, you will die in your sins”  So they said to him;  “Who are you?” Jesus answered: “What I have told you from the outset.  About you I have much to say and much to condemn, but the one who sent me is truthful and what I have learnt from him I declare to the world.”  They failed to understand he was talking about the Father. “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he and that I do nothing of myself: what the Father has given me is what I preach; He who sent me is with me and has not left me to myself, for I always do what pleases him.” As he was saying this many came to believe in him.”(John 8 : 21-30)

 Jesus is the Divine, his actions images his unity with the Father. This section of the Gospel ends with “many came to believe in him.”

Prayer God our Father, we ask for the faith to reveal you like Jesus ‘’ I always do what pleases my Father.’’ Amen
