MEADVILLE, Pa., Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "Words To
Loved Ones" (Part 3: John 13-17) of author Paul Murray's four-part series Meet Messiah, A
simple Man's Commentary on John: an important exploration into the
chapters of John's gospel that contains the events that are of
value to the narrative of Jesus's life. "Words To Loved Ones: A
Simple Man's Commentary on John Part
3: Meet Messiah Chapters 13-17" is the creation of published author
Paul Murray, a managing
broker/co-owner of Live Real Estate in Spokane Valley, Washington. After a life-changing
internship, he spent ten years as a college/high school pastor of
South Hills Community Church and then served five years as the
teaching pastor of Redlands Bible Church. Later, he started a new
church called Inland Community Bible Church where he was the
teaching pastor for five years.
Murray shares, "Jesus' public ministry is finished. There will
be no more miracles, no more healings, no more preaching to the
masses, no more teaching in the porticos of Solomon in the temple.
This third section of John's gospel covers only a few precious
hours in the life of Jesus. He has gathered with His twelve
disciples in a private upper room. Passover will begin the
following day, Friday, at 6:00
"Jesus knows that He will be arrested in a matter of hours. He
knows that He will be dragged before three religious hearings and
three official government trials. During that time, He will be
brutally beaten, almost beyond recognition. He will be crucified
and dead by about 3:00 p.m. that same
day. He knows this because He understands what the Old Testament
Scriptures have clearly foretold. The mission He was sent to
accomplish was about to be completed.
"The twelve disciples dining around the table with Him have no idea
of these events that are soon to unfold. This is just a time of
celebration before the Passover event. The city is bustling with
millions of pilgrims from all over the empire.
"Soon, however, the mood turns somber. There is talk of Him leaving
them and going away where they cannot follow, talk of another
Helper coming, and talk of a betrayer. They can sense the heaviness
in their Master's heart and they too become troubled in heart. They
have no idea that sitting with them at that meal, not six feet
away, is not only God incarnate in the person of Jesus but also the
devil, himself, incarnate in the person of Judas whose heart Satan
"A drama for all the centuries is about to be played out. Jesus has
only a few hours to prepare these men for the events of this night
that will transform them forever. These are Words to Loved Ones,
words to keep them safe and secure in a hellish storm about to be
unleashed that will overwhelm them and change human history. Sit
among these men and listen carefully to Jesus' words. Upon leaving
this room, you will never be the same."
