There is a point at which logic runs dry and faith is nourished by a certain blind trust.

Jesus is arguing with scribes who seem to have raised a logical objection to his authority. Jesus’ reply is not in text-book language. He doesn’t present watertight proofs but rather uses the picturesque language and imagery of parables. He leaves us to respond to his colourful teaching with our own totally free, ‘Of course, Lord’, and, ‘A divided kingdom is weak.’

Similarly, the letter to the Hebrews seems to meet the objection, ‘But this Jesus is only one man. Can salvation come through one man?’ The response is a rather bald: ‘Jesus is different.’ Reasoning can go little further. Jesus, free us to respond to you as person to person.
