- The good Israelite (Luke 18:18)
Asessing him, we learn he had the
- right upbringing (by his parents)
- right timing (living in Jeshuas time)
- right “race and nation” (living amongst Jeshua and not e.g. in Germania Magna or some Indian tribe)
- right general attitude (after his upbringing as a man of faith and law)
- right attitude towards Jeshua (acknoledging him)
- luck to be one out of many who came in direct contact with Jeshua
He was near perfect
But Jeshua said to him “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have, give it to those in need and you will have treasure in heaven.
You know, I said to a priest once, how good and easy the people of the time of Jeshua had it because he was there in person. Pretty injust. But the righteous priest said to me:
Forget it, Daniel. Many didn’t recognize him. And many of the few who did, didn’t obey him. And how sad is this. You’re lucky, You’re just about to learning him to know. They utterly failed, You still have a chance.
This priest was right! The good Israelite has come sooooo close to the kingdom - and failed. And how sad he must have been!
Like US election. Imagine!
I know, it is sad for some recent Trumpsters to learn about a possible loss of Trump.
But how sad it must be to come close to a “kingdom” and yet still fail. Trump’s Telegram is a witness to this. Maybe this is the only true message of the 2020 election.
