The body is a big problem for us, whether we want to admit it or
not. Even the late, great psychologist Abraham Maslow—no churchy or
Pauline preacher to say the least—warned us of the body’s
degradation in our time.
It takes the full length of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke
to gradually reveal that Jesus is Messiah and Son of God; and the
Acts of the Apostles makes it clear that the disciples really
didn't “get it.”
