Psalm: 119:121-144

Meditation

 John: The Greeks spoken of here were probably God-fearers. These are Gentiles who have come to faith in the God of Israel, but just short of circumcision. These Greeks wanted to see Jesus – what better way than through Philip. Philip was all but a sacred and feared name among Greeks. (Philip of Macedon was father to Alexander the Great.) The strange thing is that when Philip and Andrew tell Jesus, He then embarks upon what seems to me as unrelated to the Greeks. He speaks of His death.

Gospel: 

John 12:20-26

New Testament:

Acts 16:16-24

Old Testament:

Job 42:1-17
