You know what? Sometimes things really are as simple as they seem.
This ironic little truism was never more true than Jesus’ words here at the tail end of the SOTM.
Boy, if you ever wanted snappy little snapshot of God’s heart AND men’s hearts, it’s all right here in these five words,

This is our 73rd installment of Jesus in HD.
When we began this series back on November 9, 2012, we stated our primary foundational premise, one (I am pleased to say) from which we have yet to depart. That foundational premise being this: We were going to lay aside all preconceived ideas of who Jesus is, and take a fresh new look at the four Gospels, which is to say, a fresh new look at the life/ministry of Jesus from birth – death – resurrection – ascension. And we will discover anew exactly who Jesus really is.
This approach has served us well, yielding for us some fresh and refreshing new insights / a whole new portrait of just who Jesus was and is.
This never more true as when we come to a passage like the one we are considering tonight.
