GOSPEL READING: JOHN 8:31-42
The dispute between Jesus and the Jews is on who the Father is. The Jews claim Abraham to be their father. But Jesus condemns them for their actions which were in line with that of Abraham. Abraham was a man of faith and his actions proved that he believed in God and truth. Though they believed in Abraham to be their father in fact he was not.
Jesus had God as his father. All what he said and did were in line with that of God and all what proceeded from him was truth. Truth also set him free. Freedom and truth are the two signs of a person who had God as his Father. Abraham was following the directions of God. And anyone who had Abraham as his father will also do the works of Abraham (Faith). Those who have their earthly fathers will be slaves to sin.
கடவுள்தான் தந்தை என்றால் உண்மை> விடுதலை> அன்பு போன்ற பண்புகள் வாழ்ந்து காட்டப்படும். ஆபிரகாம் தந்தை என்றால் நம்பிக்கை> அன்பு வாழ்ந்து காட்டப்படும். மற்றவர்கள் தந்தை என்றால் அடிமைத்தனமும் பாவமும்தான்; இருக்கும்.
