“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever.” (John 14:15, 16)
Hearing these sentences from Jesus in today’s gospel lesson I am reminded of the Small Catechism, that nifty little book written by Martin Luther in the 1500s to help families and pastors teach the basic tenants, or teachings of faith. In addition to discussing the Apostles Creed, Holy Baptism, Holy Communion, and the Lord’s Prayer, the Small Catechism includes a discussion of the Ten Commandments.
