2019 01 13: Jesus the Baptist

Advent began in the dark as we waited for God’s salvation to come, and then at Christmas the light came on all in a rush: Joy to the world, the Savior reigns!  Epiphany is meant to be the season where we all like the three wise men come to Bethlehem to see the Lord.  It’s a season that focuses on seeing Christ.  The Word became flesh and dwelt among us at Christmas, and now in Epiphany we stay awhile with this one called Jesus.  Who is he?  Have we really seen who Jesus is, or is the Jesus we thought we knew much smaller than the real thing?
