Jesus teaches about a God of Love


Jesus spoke at length last night about his new concepts of God in response to a question by one of his apostles. While not directly criticizing the Scriptures, Jesus stated that they often portrayed God as an angry king. He said this fear of God was the only way primitive minds could develop reverence. But now the world was ready to hear a new message, he insisted, saying: “I would now lead you from reverence up through recognition, realization, and appreciation to love of the Father in heaven.” Jesus stated that the early Jews feared God because he was mighty and mysterious, and now God should be loved because he is “magnificent in his love, generous in mercy and glorious in truth.” Jesus also took the occasion to urge that the apostles cultivate “balance and composure” to offset the tendencies to be disappointed by high expectations, pride and ambition.

Officials concede that Jesus maintains a peculiar composure in the midst of the controversy surrounding him. “His powerful personality, not his powers, account for many of the so-called healings attributed to him,” said one priest. The official, who declined to be identified, also said: “When people have so much faith in an individual, their faith seems to do wonders for their health.”
