That must have been powerful for him to experience.

I certainly hope it's not seen as something worthy of you getting blocked for...

I do have one "ponderance", and I don't intend for it to take away from the significance of what your cousin experienced, nor the impact of it on your life...

But, I've always wondered why Jesus is "portrayed" to have been speaking Elizabethean English... a vernacular that had nothing to do with the Aramaic and Hebrew He would have spoken at the time (both of which are very "earthy" languages, void of the proper "thee's" and "thou's" of Elizabethean English).

And, it has nothing to do with the modern English that we speak today...

Now, I understand that your church exclusively uses the King James Bible, and so perhaps the members of your church would "hear" Jesus speak in that manner...

But in my own imagination, I get a far different picture of Jesus than the "reverant, mild-mannered, hair-parted-neatly" kind of guy who never raised His voice, and always spoke "King-Jamesese"...

I see a captivating, charismatic, life-infused person - someone who was so dynamic to listen to that thousands of people went without eating in order to hang on His every word... (as in the accounts of "feeding the multitudes"). A man full of passion, intensity, who laughed loudly and loved vigorously... who lived life full-throttle-enthusiastically!

Sorry to go off on a tangent ... this is just one of my pet peeves... occasionally I have to take it out for a walk...!

Shalom, Dena
