The epistle for today from the 11th chapter of the Acts of the Apostles tells a story. It’s the story of how the early Christians grew up—just as we as human beings grow up, just as all of us grow up from being children to becoming adults. Remember that the early Christians were a group of Jews who believed that Jesus of Nazareth in the Roman-governed province of Palestine was indeed Christ, the Messiah—the One who saves each of us. And if someone who was not Jewish recognized that Jesus was the Messiah, they either became Jewish or became closely linked to the Jewish people and the Jewish disciples who gathered around Christ. The term…

In the gospel today of Christ’s gift of sight to the man born blind, our Lord says of Himself: “I am the Light of the World.” (John 9:5)  Now this was not strictly speaking a healing miracle but a miracle of creation.  After all, the man was born blind.  Christ as the creative Logos gave him that which had never previously been known, even in a glimmer, light.  So, now the formerly blind man had an entirely new sense, one that he had never had before.  We may imagine his reaction would have been like that lady in the news recently who was born deaf but who heard for the very first time through an audio implant…
