I am continuing my push to read my entire Bible in 2016, and now find myself at the tail end of the book of Luke.
Unlike some of the minor prophets, this is a book I read — a lot — as a kid, so I’m not finding new surprises so much as reacquainting myself with old ones.
I am struck, though, by the multiple times Jesus repeats the words of the prophets — and no one seems to get it. This used to bother me as a kid, too. Don’t you people know?
Of course, hindsight is 20-20. And growing up allows you to understand how adults can’t see what is plainly right in front of them. But yeesh.
