PODCAST: Yeshua in Context – Enactments of a Prophet

olive-branchWhen you decide to get behind your assumptions and the images you are used to and seek to know Yeshua as he appeared to his own generation, it’s not easy and it’s not as if it all happens at once.

A major realization for me was that Yeshua came as a prophet. I had such a cosmic, resurrected Messiah image of him, it wasn’t easy to see the obvious. You can’t begin with the glorified, ruler Messiah if you want to understand him.

Rather, the glory of God came to us veiled and in the living, breathing form of humanity. Like the glory of God showing through the cloud in the wilderness of Israel’s wandering, so the divinity of Yeshua shone through his humanity.

If we read the life and message of Yeshua in the gospels and put what we read into human categories, the largest one is that of a prophet.
