The Jesus Stories
For those of you that know these stories, and for those of you that are new to them, perhaps you’ll both discover something. Something Jesus. Parables and parallels wrapped and unwrapped to reveal Jesus living among us. Not just then, but now. As time has passed, it seems we try so hard to explain Jesus, that we forget the narrative of his life. The way he spoke, the parables he used, the people he encountered. Humor is not a word we associate with the life of Jesus. Yet when uncorked, these stories pour out sparkling drops of laughter Jesus must have found in the people he met along the way. And why not, after all, humor is part of God’s creation as well. So we are remembering and telling the stories, even the funny ones, as this Jesus encounter continues, not just then, but now.
