B37: The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (2021)

Phillip Martin

In today’s Gospel reading from John 6:35, 41-51, “Jesus makes a lot of very bold claims about himself, but these promises about no longer hungering and no longer thirsting are some of the most impressive. No longer being hungry? Never again being thirsty? Really? It all sounds like a bit of an exaggeration, doesn’t it?” begins Phillip Martin, pastor of Epiphany Lutheran Church in Richmond, Virginia. Is it a physical, spiritual, or emotional hunger? How can Jesus fill it? Martin offers a solution. Jesus invites us to come to the table.
