After the articles on Mercy in the Old Testament, we continue with a series of articles on Mercy in the New Testament, beginning with the Gospels.
It is worth remembering that if God chose and sent prophets it was because of deviations from false religiosity, of a people who not only did not do the good they should do but also came to justify their evil in the name of God. .
But it does not work! The People of Israel ignored, he despised and even mistreated the prophets. And so God went from sending preaching prophets of mercy to sending his own Son, Mercy itself.
It is in the prologue of the Gospel of Saint John, in the first chapter, where we find exposed the reason for the Incarnation of God, why God sent his Son…
The darkness, the sin, seized the human being and rejected the light of truth and love.
That light, the truth and the mercy of God, became man through Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus Christ, the Messiah and the Anointed One, the Son of God, God himself. He came to us to illuminate our lives, so that the darkness of sin would not invade our lives created in the image and likeness of God. Lives of the Light for the light.
Jesus of Nazareth, as the prophets already did, will preach the mercy of God. And, above all, he will fight a religiosity that tries to please God without showing solidarity with the smallest and weakest brothers.
The entire Gospel of Jesus is plagued with that call to mercy. It is verifiable! We will dedicate the next articles to show it in the coming months.
