Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)
May 1, 2016
This is the 6th Sunday of Easter. For the last five weeks the scripture readings have helped us reflect on our relationship to the risen Lord. Next we will celebrate the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord, and the following week is the Feast of Pentecost. This gospel text offers a glimpse into the early Christians’ first reflection on the role of the Holy Spirit and the relationship between the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. By introducing the role of the Paraclete, the text is preparing us to celebrate the great Feast of Pentecost. But the text itself is part of John’s account of the Last Supper. From the text’s placement within John’s gospel, we see it would have helped the disciples prepare for the events of the Passion. The text is relevant for John’s community, more than a generation after the actual death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus, because they are also dealing with the absence of Jesus in another way.
