Whoever acknowledges me in the presence of others I will also acknowledge in the presence of my Father in heaven.
I go back and forth about how to treat Yeshua as Messiah versus G-d the Father. People will fall down and worship him, but he never asks for it, as I recall. He forgives people, even though forgiveness can only come from the Almighty. Their relationship is muddled and vague. Yeshua constantly emphasizes the Father and repentance and seldom shines the light on himself. As the family and I go through the apostolic writings twice over the next two years, it will be interesting to see how my kids come to regard him. As for me: I can’t help but notice allusions to him in the Tanakh, I marvel at his words in the gospels and I look to his examples of loving kindness and faith in action.
