|Gospel of St. John – Focus of our Annual Lecture|
The Byzantine Christian tradition reads the Gospel of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian throughout Pascha-tide. This is no accident. The annual celebration of the Resurrection seems to have originated in the circles around John, who looked back to him as the high priest of the mystery. Looking again at this gospel in the light of Pascha, our lecturer will consider what is meant by Christ’s last word from the cross – ‘It is finished’ – and show how the mystery of the incarnation includes us, today.
Fr. John Behr
