don’t miss the messiah

Happy are the people…who walk, O Lord, in the light of your countenance.  Psalm 89:15, NRSV

Jesus didn’t fit the Jews’ notion of a Messiah, and so, rather than change their notion, they dismissed him…

They expected lights and kings and chariots from heaven.  What they got was sandals and sermons and a Galilean accent.

And so, some missed him.  And so, some miss him still.
