The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Escape to Egypt & The Massacre of the Infants

Reflection on the Gospel of the Fourth Day (Tuesday)
In The Octave of Christmas (Feast: The Holy Innocents)

Matthew 2:13-18

The massacre of the Infants is a great horror event in the Bible, next to only killing of the Messiah-God by the Jews. There are no explanations that can be offered by me at present regarding this massacre. But when I did ask God what reflection would be proper for this Gospel Reading, what came to my mind is the theme of Redemption. Read Psalm 23 – Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. This is a promise for us, a promise Adam overlooked, David excelled in claiming, but the Jews of the Exile were strangers to…

Jesus lived with it everyday of his life, and also in his death. Here we see God protecting those who put their trust in Him, to protect and provide for them (The Holy Family). And by extension this is a promise for all of us to claim, an invitation to live one-day-at-a-time, placing our hands in God’s and trusting him to deliver us from all evil. Many of us in this time of the Covid Pandemic, can testify to his protection and provision. I invite you to comment to this post with your own testimonies…
