Text: John 13:31-35 / GCF Nuvali / 27 August 2017
John 13 introduces us to what a number of biblical scholars would coin as the “upper room discourse”. This discourse covers chapters 13 to 17, which is the longest recorded table-talk that Jesus had with the apostles before His arrest at Gethsemane.
What we can also observe as a hallmark of these sets of conversations was how the Greek word ‘agape’ or its verb form ‘agapao’ were mentioned more in chapters 13-17 in comparison to the rest of the book. Therefore, we can infer that the subject matter of “love” was definitely emphasized in the apostles’ long talk with Jesus.
In John 13:31-35, we dive into the words of Christ and discover His own definition of love, its implications in our lives and its impact to the world!
