The Jesus we Missed by Patrick Henry Reardon

The Jesus we Missed by Patrick Henry Reardon – Okay I am guilty. I’ve thought of Jesus as more divine than human, when he was clearly both. For instance the author asks ….Did Jesus ever have the stomach flu or wear diapers? What? Jesus did that? Well he was wrapped in clothes..Luke 2:12- for obvious reasons. We let ourselves off the hook of obedience by saying ‘I am only human.’ but then…so was Jesus. Does this book make us uncomfortable? It did me and it likely will you too. It makes Jesus too close for comfort. Still –since Jesus really experienced all we do that means he rally understands and we in our human selves, with the help of the Holy Spirit can walk as he walked—Obediently. For a less clinical look at the human Jeus, I suggest ‘Come to Me by Laura J Davis
