READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Mark 4-6
A GREAT REVERSAL
In our society, and especially in the Middle East, the traditional roles of the master and servant are well-defined and strictly kept. A master serving his own servant is something unheard of. And yet in our Gospel passage today is an instance (or at least a possibility) of this. Jesus says that ?it will go well with those servants whom the master finds wide awake on his return ... he will put on an apron, seat them at table, and proceed to wait on them.? This is not only a surprising twist of fate, but ?over the top.? According to Jesuit biblical scholar Nil Guillemette, ?It is difficult to imagine to what extent such a statement could be scandalizing in the ears of Jesus? contemporaries, so accustomed as they were to a rigorous compartmentalization in matters of social classes! We have here an unprecedented revelation about what God?s love can be? (Parables for Today).
St. Anthony Mary Claret, bishop confessor, pray for us.
