Year B: 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 angered 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.
Year A Scrutiny: John 11:1–45
Sunday’s Gospel describes Jesus raising his friend Lazarus from the dead. The story hints at Jesus’ own Resurrection, which we will celebrate at Easter. The raising of Lazarus puts Jesus in danger from his enemies, but he risks his life to be with and to help his friends.
