About the life of Jesus of Nazareth, the Bible records some of the story
A man who walked on Earth, helping us seek the God of eternal glory
Simply a commoner, living like a peasant, having no protective social ties
His teachings cast him as very God-revealing, a message without lies
How “divine” was he — or was he simply just a life-living human being?
A fellow “child” of God whose words may lead us to God with new meaning
He chose a path of love extended to all humans in the kind acts he did
Loving us so much and giving his life freely – no way could God be hid!
No “eye-witness” record was ever written into the Gospels of the biblical canon
Jesus’ story passed on orally, recorded decades later before blurring fully won
Can we take as truth that which was recorded in the historical chosen canon?
Is enough of a meaningful story there to give a portrait of God’s so-called “son?”
Jesus’ messages seem to ring true regardless of “Son” or “Triune” debate
Better I live out his teachings as truth, the matters of theology can wait!
For mortal life is much too short as we live and love and seek a sense of meaning
It’s how we treat others in being fully human where we can find the depth of being
Jesus as a spiritual guide to bring us to our own experiencing of the divine
To live as he lived and love as he loved — God would see as something fine
