The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Lament over Jerusalem

Reflection on the Gospel of the Thursday
Of The Thirtieth Week In Ordinary Time

 

Luke 13:31-35

Verse 31 – “Get away from here, for Herod wants to kill you.

Herod it seemed wanted to kill Jesus. Why would anyone want to kill, if a person is doing good. The answer was within Herod for he was gripped with fear, fear of losing power, position, authority, fame because of Jesus charismatic service, good works, teachings, healings, compassion and concern for the people. It bothered Herod that it was possible that Jesus one day could rise above him. Herod could see only worldly affairs, he failed to see Jesus as God. How many a times are we are griped by our own worldly affairs, and cannot see and experience The Lords presences and healing in and around us.

Even today the prophets and especially the people who bring The Word of God are ill-treated (killed). Jesus lament’s on such behaviour of the leaders and people. We are called to be Jesus, but we are lost like Herod. In spite of our failures, our killing behaviour Jesus desires to gather us to Himself. His love and concern is graciously poured on us, He keeps us always under his shelter and protection. Are we willing to change our ways and live under his care. Holy Spirit help us to understanding the God’s word which guides us to work in collaboration with those who work in your kingdom to proclaim the word.
