Today is Friday, April 29th, 2022; Karen's Korner #4650

People familiar with the Bible know that Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John know that all four of the books tell the story of Jesus' life from varying points of view.

Most Karen's Korner readers know that I call myself a Bible reader, not a Bible scholar. 

At Easter time, I was reading through the book of Luke. I noticed that Jesus' miraculous birth didn't even take up two full chapters. His bring crucified, dying, and raising back to life takes up three chapters (22 - 24).

So that leaves 20 chapters (3 - 21) telling about Jesus' time here on earth. Wouldn't you think His birth and death would deserved more attention?

What is your theory on the difference? Mine ist hat while Jesus' entrance and exit was vital to His existence, He came to show us the Way. His Way. Of compassion, caring, healing, relating to His Father, of love for us and others. We needed to know. He wanted to teach us.

In John 14:6, Jesus said, "I am the Way -- yes, and the Truth, and the Life. No one can get to the Father except by means of Me."

The Bible commentary on that verse says, "Jesus says He is the only way to God the Father. Some people may argue that this is too narrow. In reality, it is wide enough for the whole world, if the world chooses to accept it. Instead of worrying how limited it sounds to have only one way, we should be saying 'Thank you God, for providing a sure way to get to you!"
