Through death, grains of wheat become the bread of life. Jesus' enigmatic response to a request to see him.

Amid the turmoil leading up to his arrest, Jesus stays in control by surrendering control. Can we do the same?
Jesus does not call us to mock and revile our enemies but to love and bless them.
