3/20/2019 - The Appearance of Some Greeks in the Gospel of John

March 20, 2019 • Dr. Jim Freeman, Ph.D.

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus refuses to fully reveal his identity by saying, “My hour has not yet come.” In John’s Gospel, the full revelation of Jesus’ divinity takes place when facing his crucifixion he finally says, “My hour has come”. This is keyed by the mysterious appearance of some Greeks who wish to see him. What possible connection does the appearance of some Greeks have to do with the crucifixion? Might it have something to do with the word “logos” in Greek, the word used to describe Jesus’ full divinity at the very beginning of the Gospel? “Logos” has a very rich and complex history in Greek philosophy. Is there some connection between that history and audience for whom John is writing this Gospel? To find out, join us as his program continues on March 20th. Jim Freeman, a parishioner of St. David’s, has a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Rice University. He has had a long career in independent schools, having been headmaster of three different schools in Texas. He presently teaches Latin and Philosophy at Blessed Trinity School in Roswell.
