Here is a small paragraph from the book “Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus”. This is one of the best books that I read last year. It is written by Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg. There are many such beautiful paragraphs in this book. It is a good read for learning about the Jewishness of our Jesus, which would enhance our understanding of Jesus and his words.
Here is the Passage.
“Imagine for a moment that you possess the sheet music of the most beautiful piano concerto ever written, but you never heard the whole piece perfectly performed. Then one day you meet the composer’s son, who himself is a great pianist. This man knows his father’s music by heart. As he sits down to play with the orchestra, the music is so achingly beautiful that you began to weep. At last you have heard the most magnificent concerto in the world being played exactly as the composer intended. This is a rough analogy of what Jesus has done for us, not merely telling us but showing us what human beings, created in God’s image, were meant to become.”
This paragraph presents us a beautiful illustration of Jesus. Jesus not only showed us how a human life is exactly to be lived. He showed human beings how exactly God would look like. If you want to know God, Study the life of Jesus. That’s how God will look like.
