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.
