As you may recall, last week’s reading from the Gospel of Mark skipped over a large chunk of text. As I mentioned then, the missing text consisted of two very important accounts in the life of Jesus: the story of the feeding of the 5000 and the story of Jesus’ walking on the sea. Well, today we get those missing stories, albeit from the Gospel of John.

It seems that word has spread that Jesus is miraculously healing the sick. And in an age when only the very wealthy could afford to consult a physician, there were many people who were sick. And they were besieging Jesus. Needing a little respite from the crowd, he climbed to the top of a hill overlooking the Sea of Galilee. When he sees that the crowd is following him even there, he doesn’t get angry. He doesn’t even complain. Instead, he expresses concern that the people will suffer hunger.

Prophecy’s Price and Prevenient Grace

As you may know, the English word “Gospel” literally means “Good News,” but in my humble opinion, today’s Gospel reading is rather devoid of Good News. Fortunately, the Epistle is chock full of it. So let me say a few words about the Gospel, and then finish with a discussion of the Epistle. That way, we can end on a high note!

St. Mark has given us the outline of John the Baptist’s judicial murder. But he has left out a few details that help to set the scene. John the Baptist, while in his early 30s, reprimanded Herod Antipas, the son of Herod the Great, because he had married his half-brother’s ex-wife. (Oh, and did I mention she was also his niece?) Under Jewish law, the marriage was both adulterous and incestuous. Now, the main purpose of a prophet is to call the people back to a right relationship with God and with one another. And that is just what John did, publicly denouncing Herod’s marriage as an offence against God and demanding that it be annulled. Herod had no desire to repent; so, he arrested John to shut him up. But he was reluctant to go so far as to execute the pestilent prophet. Perhaps he was afraid to kill a holy man, or perhaps he was just afraid that John’s disciples would riot.
