On this Reformation weekend we hear words of freedom in our Gospel reading. Jesus tells his listeners that “The truth will set you free.” The Jews who heard this already thought they were free, wondering, "who is this guy that he doesn’t know we are free?" At this time the Jews were living under the oppressive Roman government, yet they think they are free. Could it be the same with us? Perhaps your freedom might be an illusion, like the freedom the Jews thought they had. Could you be carrying burdens and wrapped up in the illusion of life instead of really living?
