A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John.
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood up and shouted,
“Any who are thirsty,
let them come to me and drink!
Those who believe in me, as the scripture says,
‘From their innermost being
will flow rivers of living water.’”
Here Jesus was referring to the Spirit, which those who came to believe were to
receive—though she had not yet been given, since Jesus had not been glorified.
The Good News as spoken through John.
