We are nearing the conclusion of our journey through the Gospel of John, and this week we reflect upon Christ’s crucifixion and death. In John 19 we learn that might does not make right. Only grace and truth make right. The grace and truth embodied in the Word of God, poured out in suffering and death, is the “way and means of salvation” (Eugene Peterson). Jesus willingly enters into death on behalf of the world which he created and shoulders the yoke of separation from the Father. It is here in John that darkness settles and seems to celebrate. The Light of the World quenched. But we conclude our lesson tomorrow not in despair. We remember the words of John 1:5… “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
