2 Sam 18:5-33; Ps 130; Eph 4:25-5:2; Jn 6:35, 41-51
Oh, My Son! ~ Rev Brian Perron
Audio of Sunday’s sermon may be listened to here:
O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! 2 Sam 18:33
ᐃᕐᖕᓃᒃ! ᐋᑉᓴᓚᒻ, ᐃᕐᖕᓃᒃ!” 2 ᓴᒧᐃᓕᑦ18:33
Mon fils Absalom! mon fils, mon fils Absalom!2 Sam 18:33
O anak kong Absalom, anak ko, anak kong Absalom! 2 Sam 18:33
The Father’s words dealing with the son are explicit! King David orders his officers to deal gently with his son, Absalom. Through the words of Jesus, the son of God is revealed to us as the bread of life; we will no longer hunger nor thirst. And yet again, there is deliberate confusion in the minds of men, as with the son of David, the son of God is hung on a tree and pierced with a spear due to the wishes of humankind, contrary to the will of God. Together with the father, we grieve, oh my son! However Jesus, the son of God, is resurrected and we are asked to remember the Sabbath, to commune in fellowship with the bread and wine of the son of God this Sunday. Come and eat of the living bread, for ever.
