If you mentally transport yourself to the Levant, two millennia back, you’d doubtless be seeking out Jesus.
But would you recognize Him?
Before you say, “of course, and what a silly question!” remember that most of the people He met looked past Him. They were looking for a temporal King, and thought that a carpenter’s son could never lead them.
Or they looked through Him, because they didn’t hear His words in their hearts.
Or they looked at Him, and saw an enemy, a threat to their entrenched beliefs, or a threat to their self-interest.
The people who followed Him seemed to be those who would open their hearts and minds, and listen. Jesus brought no magic, he performed no Jedi ind-tricks.
He spoke with a heart of Love, and offered that Love to anyone who cared to listen without judgement.
Would you recognize Him?
