The Hour Has Come
John 12.27-36

As I was walking into my study to begin working on this passage, I was alarmed to hear three loud explosions from the other side of the street. We live close to some important national buildings, and there is always a danger that terrorists will somehow succeed, despite all the security precautions, in placing a bomb there. It’s happened before, and it could happen again. At once I rushed to the window and looked out.

To my relief, all I could see was a shower of coloured stars against the black night sky. It was a fireworks display. As I write this, it is going on, louder than ever. I wonder how many other people in the middle of the city jumped nervously at the first bang. Revolution or celebration? It all depends how you interpret the sudden noise...
