JESÚS, SALVADOR
JESUS, SAVIOR
I
remember a wedding homily that
offered three words of advice to the
couple: share, care, be fair. Perhaps the
priest was inspired by John the Baptist’s
advice in today’s Gospel, because those three
words summarize John’s advice to three
different groups. To the crowds John says,
“Share your clothes and your food” (cf. Luke
3:11). To the tax collectors, who often
profited by overtaxing people, he advises, “Care for these
people” (cf. vs. 13). And to the Roman soldiers, who could
be oppressive, he warns, “Be fair. Don’t abuse your
power” (cf. vs. 14). These three words remain good advice
in our own day. When people share with each other,
especially those in need; when they care that all are justly
treated; and when they are fair in seeing that all have
what is necessary to live a human life; then God’s kingdom
truly comes into the world. But John brought more than
good advice. He was the herald of good news about One
coming whom they had long awaited: the Anointed One,
the Messiah. John saw him as one coming in judgment and
in fire, but when Jesus did come, he came as Savior.
What does it mean to call Jesus Savior?
R
ecuerdo una homilía de boda que
ofrecía tres palabras de consejo a la
pareja: compartir, cuidar, ser justos.
Tal vez el sacerdote fue inspirado por el
consejo de Juan el Bautista en el Evangelio de
hoy, porque esas mismas tres palabras
resumen el asesoramiento de Juan a tres
grupos diferentes. Para las multitudes Juan
dice: "Comparte tu ropa y tu alimento" (Lucas
3:11). Para los recaudadores de impuestos, que a menudo se
beneficiaban por sobrecargar a la gente, aconseja, "No cobren
más de lo establecido" (cf. vs. 13). Y a los soldados romanos, que
podrían ser opresivos, les advierte, "Sean justos. No abusen de
su poder” (cf. vs. 14). Estas tres palabras siguen siendo un buen
consejo en nuestros días. Cuando la gente comparte con los
demás, especialmente con los necesitados; cuando cuidan de
que todos sean tratados con igualdad; y cuando son justos en
velar de que todos tengan lo necesario para vivir con dignidad;
entonces el reino de Dios, en verdad, viene al mundo. Pero Juan
trajo más de un buen consejo. Él era el heraldo de las buenas
noticias sobre El que habían esperado: el Ungido, el Mesías. Juan
lo vio como alguien que viene a traer fuego y a juzgar, pero
cuando Jesús vino, vino como Salvador.
Qué significa llamar a Jesús Salvador?

God’s love with others through
our tradition of The Jesse Tree.

helping those in need.

and you may contribute with one or as many items as you wish
from those listed. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and
may your heart be filled with hope, love, joy, and peace this
Advent season.
El “Árbol de Jesé” celebra la historia de la acción

hacen falta a las siguientes organizaciones en nuestra
comunidad. Estas organizaciones se dedican a ayudar a los
más necesitados.
