emmausIf Jesus were to ask me, as he asked his disciples, “Who do people say I am?  Who do you say that I am?” I know one thing for sure: Whatever I say will miss the Reality. I’m conditioned by pictures, early education, Scripture studies, life experience, cosmology and its impact of theological expression, and what other people say. I’m sure I could say something! But would Jesus respond as he did to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus:  “How little sense you have”? Or would Jesus say, “Right on!” because who Jesus is for me is who Jesus is for me. That’s the only Jesus I know. And perhaps that’s exactly how Jesus wants to be known by me, because after all God is the one who inspires our faith and our God-picture.

Who is Jesus for you? Where did you get your image or impression?
