It seems odd that we should be hearing these passages from John’s Gospel in the weeks of our Easter celebration.  Remember that we are still very much in Easter – for another 14 days.  Alleluia!  Christ is Risen!

But here, in the midst of our Alleluia celebration we hear Jesus preparing his Disciples for the day he will no longer be with them.  Referred to as the “Farewell Discourse”, Jesus’ words of instruction are meant to ready the disciples to continue on after his crucifixion and resurrection.
