“Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps my word will never see death.” What a powerful statement, and for some it may even sound too harsh. But let us go back and see what Jesus’ word was. Jesus left two commandments: love the Lord your God and love your neighbour (Matt. 22:34-40). Jesus’ word was to go and proclaim the good news to others, to bring joy to the world, which in turn brings about life.
