Who is Jesus?

Back in March our usual church routine was surprised.
Instead of an order of service rehearsed and documented to the minute
we sat in a circle
and talked.

It was definitely a more meaningful service for me, i left feeling excited!
Unfortunately being too terrified to actually speak to the group means i find myself here sharing my thoughts online.
So..who is Jesus?
We had all the usual which i struggle to connect with

Prince of peace                     King                              omnipotent

How about misunderstood?

His disciples spent days with Him, talking to Him! Yet still some remained clueless as to who He was and couldn’t understand His true purpose.
We have the bible so we can see more of the bigger picture. But there will always be some grey areas of misunderstanding. Hence there are thousands of christian denominations. But in another light the misunderstanding is an invitation, there is tension, mystery. And He wants us to respond to that and delve into it, discover, seek.

How about radical?
I regret not studying ancient civilisations but my limited knowledge is that the cultural and political ways of the Roman Empire were hierarchical, emphasising power, wealth, status. Jesus subverted that. A king who was born with animals.
Touched lepers.
Cared for the unclean.
Spoke to women.

We also took communion together following Jesus words to remember him, we talked about the memories of Jesus in our life.
Across my life there are a handful of times i’ve felt the presence of God. After some reflection i can most sum it up by saying that in my darkness, Jesus comes in and He cares for me.
