Befriending Jesus

While many worship Jesus, few befriend Him.

To be His friend is to share His cup, and to suffer His fate.

Just as Eternal Wisdom infused earth with heaven through Her suffering as Jesus, so His friends reveal the Kingdom's peace by confronting the Empire's violence, and suffering the consequences.
