SUNDAY’S GOSPEL—March 18, 2018 – 5th Sunday of Lent

Author: David Dziena ~ March 12, 2018


John 12:20–33

In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus faces religious leaders who are plotting against him. Many Jews and Greeks in Jerusalem were coming to him, and this fueled anger in Jesus’ opponents. Jesus explains his fate by using the parable of a grain of wheat falling to the ground. Unless it dies, it remains a single grain. If the seed dies, it will produce a rich harvest.
