Third Sunday In Advent – Church Back Home – December 13, 2015

Today’s lessons remind me of when I was a young boy and my mother was admonishing me to “look both ways”, which this pair of lesson seems to be doing. In the Epistle, we are warned about making judgements before we have all of the evidence. But then in the Gospel, we have another situation.

First, John the Baptist’s disciples ask him if he is the one everyone was waiting for, and Jesus tells them to tell John of what they’ve seen. And then, he poses another question to the multitude which had been following him: What did they go to see when they went to see John?

In the first instance, we’re given a situation in which not all of the evidence is in. But in the second, it is time to realize what’s going on because the evidence is there!
