And they traveled on for a day thinking Jesus was in their company…

“…which is kind of like most of us. Maybe even like our whole tradition. We travel on for a couple of centuries thinking Jesus was in our company and we look around. “Where is he? I thought he was with you.”

“…Jesus was in the temple, but he was not teaching. he was sitting amongst the elders. He was listening to them and he was asking them questions and they were astonished at his answers. That is the Jesus way. He is sitting with, he is listening to and he is asking meaningful questions of. What if his followers did more of that…”

Mark 10:32, “They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples who were close to Jesus were astonished, while those who were behind were afraid.” For the rest of my life, I want to be right up close to Jesus and be astonished. How far back are you following?
