Reclining Faith – John 13:21-38

The posture of a beloved disciple is one who leans back and reclines on Jesus. On one of the darkest nights in history, Jesus' friends respond in different ways. Peter, Judas and John respectively demonstrate postures of self-reliance, God-defiance and God-dependence. The beloved the disciple is one who rests on Jesus, leans back on his chest and has a posture of reclining faith.
