Tuesday Fifth Week of Lent, based on John 8:21-30

Jesus said to the Pharisees: ‘I am going away, and you will search for me, but you will die in your sin. Where I am going, you cannot come.’ Then the Jews said, ‘Is he going to kill himself? Is that what he means by saying, “Where I am going, you cannot come”?’ He said to them, ‘You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins, for you will die in your sins unless you believe that I am he.’ They said to him, ‘Who are you?’ Jesus said to them, ‘Why do I speak to you at all? I have much to say about you and much to condemn; but the one who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him.’ They did not understand that he was speaking to them about the Father. So Jesus said, ‘When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own, but I speak these things as the Father instructed me. And the one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what is pleasing to him.’ As he was saying these things, many believed in him.

About Dominic DeLay OP

Dominic is a filmmaker in Los Angeles, California. With his production company Mud Puddle Films he creates emotionally engaging, thought-provoking, and artistic films for mainstream audiences, films that ask questions more than give answers. And even the questions are not necessarily articulated in language. He likes to quote choreographer Martha Graham’s response when asked what one of her dances meant: “If I could tell you what it means, I wouldn’t have to dance it.”

His new film, “Inside Darkness,” is about three presidential candidates trapped in a dark cell. Watch the trailer and more at www.InsideDarkness.com.
