The gospels devote a disproportionate amount of attention to Jesus' final journey to Jerusalem. More than a third of Matthew, almost half of Mark and nearly two-thirds of Luke are devoted to the period after Jesus "set his face to go to Jerusalem," (Luke 9:51). What follows takes several months before Jesus enters the last week of his life, which occurs late in these gospels. But in John's gospel, Jesus enters the last week early, and almost half of the gospel is spent there, on the characters and events in the final days of Jesus. Several of these events are not mentioned in the other gospels (i.e. visit of the Greeks, washing of the disciples' feet, the Olivet Discourse, and the high priestly prayer), yet John devotes large portions of the second half of his gospel to them. In these events, Jesus touches several nerves, raises several questions and calls for commitments in places that resonate with us today. When he speaks to them, he is speaking to us, calling us further in to the life of Christ. What follows is a collection of these sayings from John 12-13, with implications for our lives today.
