Dorothy Lee joins Kylie and Fran to explore major themes in John 6, focusing on the gospel reading for the day (John 6:35,41-51), but taking in passages throughout the five weeks of John in the lectionary. We touch on the broader structure of this section of John’s gospel, and the relationship of John 6 to Passover and Exodus. Moving into key themes of eternal life, true bread, universalism and the invitation to believe.
We mention Dorothy’s book The Gospels Speak: Addressing Life’s Questions
A story from Thomas Merton’s collection The Wisdom of the Desert Fathers.
