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
After receiving the morsel, Satan entered Judas. Then Jesus said to him, ‘What you are going to do, do quickly.’…Then, having received the morsel, Judas went out. It was night.
Then when he had gone out, Jesus said, ‘Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, then God in turn will glorify him in his own self and shall glorify him immediately.
‘Little children, I am yet with you for such a short time. You will look for me. Just as I told the Jews, I am saying to you. Where I am going, you cannot yet come so I say this to you: I am giving you a new commandment. Love one another! Just as I have loved you so you must love each other. By this will all people know that you are my disciples: by the love you have for each other.’
