contemplating the Scriptures

Jeremiah 31:31-34

In a time of political and religious convulsions, Jeremiah comforts the people of both northern and southern Israel. Despite their past infidelity, God will act for his people, in a new way.


Hebrews 5:5-10

The author has outlined the role of the Jewish high priest. Now he compares, and contrasts, Christ with him.


John 12:20-33

The festival of Passover, an occasion when both Jews and others who hold God in awe, approaches – as does Jesus' death on the cross.
