Before Abraham was, I am

Matt 20:17-19: Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, "We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, thank you ane we praise you for your plan to cover our sins with your grace by the death of your Son. May we live today aware of his sacrifice and confident of his victory over sin and death, so our life may reflect your victory. In the name of Infant Jesus, our precious Savior, we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 8:51-59)
When God established an association with Abraham, he offered him a strong "everlasting covenant". Jesus came to fulfill that covenant to facilitate we could know the living God and be united by him both now and for all eternity. God made everyone to know him and to be joint with him and he give everyone the gift of faith and understanding so that we may grow in the knowledge of what he has accomplished for us through his Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus challenged the people of Israel to accept his word as the exceptionally revelation of God himself. His claim challenged the very base of their belief and understanding of God. Jesus made a series of claims which are the very foundation of his life and task. What are these claims? First, Jesus claims exclusive knowledge of God since the only begotten Son of the Father in heaven. Since he claims to be in straight personal communion with his Father in heaven, he knows all about the Father. Jesus asserts that the single way to full knowledge of the mind and heart of God is through himself. Jesus also claims unique obedience towards God the Father. He thinks, lives and acts in the facts of his Father's word. In Jesus alone we observe what God wants us to know and what he wants us to exist.
