His testimony is trustworthy.

"It is this disciple who testifies to these things and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true." (John 21: 24).

Saturday 30th May 2020, eve of Pentecost 2020.

John the Beloved Disciple whom the Church believes is the author of the 4th Gospel invites us to trust the authenticity and inspiration of the Gospel he authored. What is trust based on? Ultimately, trust is based on credible witness. If the credible witness is an eye witness, so much the better. Consider this fact for a moment: If we consider the words of CNN or Fox News true, why should we doubt the word of God that changes lives and lasts forever?

"What we have seen and heard
we proclaim now to you so that you too may have fellowship with us."  (1 John 1: 3)

John the Evangelist heard Jesus speak and touched Him several times.  He leaves us a compelling eyewitness account of the solid basis of our faith.  With this, we can better appreciate what St Paul says to the Ephesians:

"Our Household [Church] is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone."  (Ephesians 2: 20)

The foundation of our faith is unshakeable.
