As the Master Teacher, Jesus often used the regular things of life, like birds, salt, coins, sheep, and fig trees to teach spiritual lessons. Near the end of his life, Jesus used a kernel of wheat to draw attention to a paradoxical reality – If There’s No Death, There’s No Life!  As we explore John 12:20-26, we discover that the divine principle that is imbedded in a kernel of wheat is present in the death and resurrection of Jesus and in several dimensions of our lives as well.
