Only after Easter were the disciples able to understand Jesus’ words. Now they knew that He was and is God in the flesh, our way to the Father. So sure were they, that Stephen could echo Jesus’ last words as he faced death. Peter, in the Epistle, was able to review prophetic words of Scripture that they now knew spoke of Jesus. Today it is our turn to proclaim Jesus as the way, truth, and life, so that our friends will also know who He is and join us to live in His marvelous light.
