And you shall know
that I,
the Lord,
am your Savior
and your Redeemer,
the Mighty One
of Jacob.
[Isaiah 60:16]
********************
"Lord JESUS?"

"Yes, child?"

"Hey, could You
like, talk to the FATHER
for ME?"

"About what,
My child?"

"Eh......
(Squirm.)
eh....Ya know;
about me calling
Him a Big Weeny, and all."

[Suppressed Smile.]
[NOD.]
"Ah.
Yes, My child."

"So.....that means Y'ur
gonna TALK to HIM?"

"No."

"HUH?
WHAT?
Why NOT?"

"I said no, My child."

(Squint, kvetchingly,
up at ceiling.)
"But, why NOT?
I thought that's what
Y'ur SUPPOSED 'ta DO!"

"Do what,
child."

"Well.....You know;
You're supposed to, like,
talk as our INTERMEDIARY:
with the FATHER!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Lord JESUS?
Where'd Ya GO?"

[SMILE.]
"I'm right Here,
child."

"WELL?
What'd Ya SAY?"

[PATIENT SMILE.]
"Child, Who AM I?"

(Squint rather squeamishly.)
"Eh....I dunno, Lord Jesus.
I dunno."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Well, I DON'T!
These CHRISTIANS!
They drive me MESHUGUNAH!
Some'a them say Y'ur
like a Friend, or BROTHER!
Then, SOME of 'em say
You were like that KING:
METHU...SALA?"

[BURST OUT LAUGHING!]
"WHO, child?"

"Ya know: that GUY -
that KING - that Abraham
went to see, back in
Genesis!"

"Ah.
[PATIENT NOD.]
I see.
Read It to Me."

"Yeah. Lemme finish
these beans, Lord Jesus.
Wait a minute.
(Scraping and clinking sounds.)
(Set bowl down for cat.)
Okay.
Yeah, here it is:

And Melchizedek
king of Salem
brought out bread and wine;
he was priest of God
Most High.
And he blessed .....
Blessed be Abram
by God Most High,
Maker of Heaven
and earth....
[Genesis 14:18-19]

Was that YOU, Lord Jesus?"

[SILENCE.]

"That's okay;
You don't have 'ta tell me!
But.....are You gonna
APOLOGIZE for me to
the FATHER?"

"You do it, child."

"Eh......I dunno, Lord Jesus.
There's just a lotta,
You know.....bad blood
between us: 'tween me
and HIM."

[NOD.]

"Yeah; it kinda goes way
back, like, before You
were born."

[CHUCKLE.]
"Ah!
I see!"

"Yeah; it's got nothin'
to do with You.
Don't worry about it."

[NOD.]
[SMILE.]
"I see."

(Silence.)

[SILENCE.]

"Child?"

"Yeah?
(Grimmace.)
I mean:
YES, Lord JESUS?"

"You are mistaken:
about one thing."

"Yeah?
(Grimmace, again.)
I mean:
YES?"

[LOVING GAZE.]
"This blood between
you and the Father."

"Yeah?
What ABOUT it?"

"It is not bad."

"WHY?"

"Because, child;
[PAUSE.]
It is Mine."
*********************
In the beginning
was the Word,
and the Word
was with God,
and the Word
was God.......
All things were made
through Him,
and without Him
was not
anything
made......
[John 1:1-3]
