In today's reading, Peter in Acts and Jesus in John use the same strategy in confrontation with the leaders of their people. They expose false leaders with allusions to the Hebrew Scriptures, while reflecting on Jesus' death and rising. Jesus' parable of the good shepherd continues his argument with some of the Pharisees, following the healing of the man born blind. In Ezekiel, God dismissed the shepherds of Israel for pasturing themselves and not their sheep, declaring, "I myself will look after and tend my sheep" (34:1-16). So, unlike the hired hand who works for pay and has no concern for the sheep, Jesus will lay down his life for them—lay it down "in order to take it up again." Peter too exposes the callousness of leaders who would punish him "for a good deed done to a cripple." Then citing Psalm 118, he proclaims that God has raised Jesus, "the stone rejected by the builders," for the salvation of all. Whether we think of ourselves as sheep or as living stones, the message of Easter is that because of Jesus' resurrection, we are God's beloved children, even now.

"The family which experiences the joy of faith communicates it naturally. That family is the salt of the earth and light of the world; it is the leaven of society."
