7/11/20 – In todays reading, we see a royal official, someone of high status and power in the local community who is desperate for his dying son to be healed. He finds Jesus and begs him to heal his son. Jesus’ response is interesting in that he acknowledges that people need signs and miracles to believe. Its difficult to figure out if Jesus is saying this in frustration, sadness or just stating a matter of fact. But either way, the man remains adamant for Jesus to heal his son. And he does. As we read, take note of the man’s request and Jesus’ response including the way in which Jesus heals the boy and ultimate result of that miracle.
