I have not blogged for the last 7 months or so. I have been busy with terms two and three of my course. First year is now done and dusted!
The one overwhelming thing that i have re-realised is Jesus' humanity. In fact, it was probably the first time I have realised his full humanity (not that I have fully grasped it!). Grand mystical notions of his earthly existence are just that: notional. The element of what God has done is mysterious, but more so the 'why', not the 'how', although at first the 'how' may not make sense to people. This is my viewpoint right now.
Just as easily it could be the other way around. Depends where we are on our journey. Once we have looked at what he has done, from as many angles as we can possibly can, we then start to slowly realise that it is not about knowledge, but about relationship. Jesus is earthy. He is not a law-bringer. He completes the law, but key to realise is that it is completed. Grace triumphs law.
Of course there are those who know this way before the knowledge element is 'wratched up'. But I am a recovering pharisee.
In Christ alone.
