Communing with Truth

Look at Saul: Here is a man with the best of brains and schooled by Gamaliel, the best of teachers of his time. He knew the Scriptures; he knew the Truth. But then, that part of the Truth that he had not known hits him hard, felling him to the ground, blinding him, and breaking open spaces in his mind and heart for the entry of the Truth, not as a concept, but as a person, an encounter, a relationship. If he was willing to kill for the sake of the impersonal truth he had known before, now he is willing to suffer, as the Lord informs Ananias, for the sake of Him, the Truth in flesh and blood. It is to such an intimate encounter that Jesus is inviting the Jews (and us) who are listening to him: to commune with him in his body and blood so as to live in him.
