Jesus is more

Jesus, the Son of God, hiding in plain sight. Multitudes surround him, crush in on him, seek his healing touch. But his deeper identity is obscured. Only the ‘unclean spirits’ recognise who he really is. We are reminded that Jesus is not just a wandering healer, or preacher of good values, but God-made-flesh. The Son of God who heals us, at the depths of ourselves, by reconciling us to himself, and to the Trinity.
