I’ve received this in my email today, and I thought, I’d share with you Christian friends out there.
Jesus called himself a”thief in the night” an outlaw.
And, in many ways, even today,our Lord remains a “fugitive”who fled from us years ago.
Christ walks upon the waters. We have no fingerprints and no photographs of him, no portraits painted while he was alive. There are no recordings of his voice, no books written by him.
There’s just the testimony of a few long-dead witnesses: men and women who walked and talked with him, broke bread with him, washed his feet, heard his voice, looked in his eyes.
Some recorded small physical details about Jesus; others wrote more about his spirit. From their testimony, the four Gospels, we Christians today have general impressions of Jesus.
But until now, no writer has approached the Gospels as would a policeman pursuing a fugitive, intent on discovering every single detail about the one who has fled:
â€¢ how tall he is (and how strong)
â€¢ the way he stands
â€¢ the clothes he wears
â€¢ the friends he has
â€¢ the places he stays
â€¢ his gestures
â€¢ how his mind works
â€¢ his facial expressions
â€¢ and even how he looks at people.
Cleffairy: My question here is why, none of us pursue this Holy Fugitive the way we pursue others?
