The Gospel Paraphrased

There are many fine translations of the Gospels readily available.  This paraphrase is not meant to replace them.  Rather the intention here is to offer a more contemporary rendering so that you can imaginatively translate the Gospel into your own situation.

This Sunday's Gospel Paraphrased

When Jesus was walking in the Temple at the Feast of Dedications, the Jews surrounded him and demanded that he declare whether he was the Christ or not. Jesus replied, “…You do not believe me because you are no sheep of mine.”

This Sunday’s Reading.
Jn 10: 27-30

Jesus said, ‘My sheep hear my voice. I know them and they follow me.
I give them eternal life and they will never perish for no-one can snatch them out of my hand.
My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all and no-one is able to snatch them out of the hand of the Father.
The Father and I are one.’

The Jews again took up stones with which to stone him.
