It was one of the passages we discussed during the Bible study I attended one night. A familiar story, one that I could probably recite in my sleep. I thought it curious that our leader would choose what I thought of as “children’s stories,” but then she addressed them in a very interesting light. “Meditate on the passage, imagining as though you were there in the story,” she said. “Whether you relate more with Jesus, or the disciples, or anyone else mentioned, try to see what they were seeing. Let the Spirit show you something new.” Now, I’m quite an imaginative person, so I gladly welcomed the imagination exercise. What I didn’t expect was to receive a revelation that would change the way I saw the story forever, and it’s one that I would like to share with you.
