5th Sunday - C
The Word of God
Last week, Jesus went to Nazareth. He reached out to his townfolk. Yet, they drove him away.
Today, the crowd come to Jesus. They even “press in on” him and “listen to the word of God.”
They must have recognized who he is. It is worth to note that here Luke uses the Greek noun “logos” - translated to “word” in the singular. The people do not just listen to some person's words. Is Luke drawing the readers' attention to the fact that Jesus is God's Word made flesh?
How about me? Do I have the same hunger or eagerness to press in on Jesus and listen the Word of God?
