Do you realize who Jesus is?

Morning: Psalms 46, 97; Isaiah 49:1–7; Revelation 21:22–27
Epiphany means “Aha! Now I see!”  The Pharisees, not realizing who Jesus is, want to kill this ‘imposter’.  Others, not yet realizing his true purpose, but calling themselves his friends, insist on promoting him loudly or proudly.  They also do away with Jesus, inadvertently destroying what he stands for. Matthew, though, quoting Isaiah, portrays Jesus as a servant: “He will not wrangle or cry aloud, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.” [He is humble.] “He will not break a bruised reed or quench a smouldering wick.” [He is gentle and compassionate.]  Do you realize who Jesus is?
