“Today’s gospel, then, offers insight into Jesus’ identity. Similarly, his conversation with the terrified disciples: ‘It is I’ can also be translated ‘I am’—the divine name. We can say Jesus is God, or we can tell a much more engaging story!”

— Ken Overberg, S.J., in his latest gloss on the Gospel for the students and parishioners at Xavier University’s Bellarmine Chapel.  Welcome back to school, Musketeers!
