Gospel text
Jn 5:17-30
Jesus answered the Jews: “My Father is at work until now, so I am at work.” For this reason they tried all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the Sabbath but he also called God his own father, making himself equal to God.
Gospel's Commentary
Today Jesus reveals His identity a little bit more: He is God! At the beginning of His preaching He used the title of "Son of Man": it was a gentle way of transmitting that He came from Heaven. With prudent pedagogy, He gradually manifested His divine nature. Anyone could suspect it: by His miracles, by the authority with which He taught... —The Holy Week is approaching, these days in which He will definitively and solemnly unveil His Being-God. Before the high priest He will say, "I am."
