So what do you think as far as “Time Warps and Other Sciency Stuff”? Would Laura’s card still have the words “God raised Him from the dead” if she traveled back in time before Jesus was crucified, buried, and resurrected?
More importantly, and not “Sciency” at all, what do you think about how Jesus looks? Does He look like your neighbor? That needy person on the street? Or does he look like a new dishwashing machine?
My prayer for all of my readers, is that during the remainder of this Holy Week, you will see Jesus in a new way. It’s not for me to say what that new way is (of course)! But my prayer is that you will see Real Life Jesus in a new way, that some aspect of who He is will come into sharper focus and be real in your life.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) I will be posting the “Monthly Digest” editions for March, but will not be posting anything from Maundy Thursday through Easter Sunday. This is to give myself a chance to see Real Life Jesus in a new way as well!
(For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the “Laser Eyes Jesus” comic strip found here, Laser Eyes Jesus is not Real Life Jesus. They just have the same name and are from the same period of time. As the comic strip unfolds over the next months or years, I am expecting to work an encounter between these two into the plot! I just don’t want anyone who is new Nickel Boy Graphics to be confused, so Laura is right, that was not her Jesus, but would she have recognized her Jesus if she had seen him?!?)
