Open your Bible now to the seventh chapter of John. As we come back to the seventh chapter, we come back to a day in the life of our Lord. It's interesting, isn't it, that the story of the Gospel of John goes from eternity past to the life and ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ on earth. It covers a vast amount of time and even throws in some of eternity.
And yet there are huge chunks of the Gospel of John that focus on one day or one week. This is one of those. It's mid-week. We don't know what day, but it's in the middle of a week. It's in the autumn as we come into chapter 7. Harvest is past, the work of harvest is pretty well done. And gold has begun to streak the leaves around the city of Jerusalem and the rest of the Mediterranean world. It is now six months until the spring Passover when Jesus will be crucified, so as we come to chapter 7, we're really coming into the last leg of his journey on earth, his ministry leading up to the cross....
