The Day of Pentecost
Sermon Text: John 14:23-31
Grace, mercy and peace be unto you from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Dearly Beloved of the Lord,
He was speaking to Judas… at the beginning of our Gospel text that is. It says that “Jesus answered him” but the “him” is not the Judas who betrayed our Lord. It is most likely the other disciple Judas, the son of James, who with the other Apostles is listening to our Savior speak of His impending ascension and what that means for them and for the world.
