For this reason
the Jews
seized me
in the temple,
and
tried
to kill me.
[Acts 26:21]
*********************
"HEY, LORD?"

[WISE LOOK.]
"What is it,
Mein kinder."

(Suspicious peering up at ceiling.)
"What: do You
know what I'm
gonna ...SAY?"

[NOD.]

(Impatient squirm.)
"Well, what FUN is
THAT?"

[CHUCKLE.]
[PAUSE.]
"Tell Me,
My precious."

(Sigh.)
"Well, You KNOW
how upset, I've
BEEN."

[CALM NOD.]
[WATCH SOME
SUN STORMS
HAPPENING
ON THE SUN.]

"That class, tonight,
made me very
UNCOMFORTABLE."

[CALM NOD.]
[LISTEN TO SOME
LITTLE BIRDS WARBLING
AT THE SAN ANTONIO
ZOO, BEFORE THEY
SETTLE DOWN TO SLEEP.]

"Why do they have
to talk about the
JEWS, so MUCH?"

[CALM GAZE.]
"Who, child?"

"That PAUL GUY!
That PAUL GUY!"

[SMILE.]

"He REALLY gets on
my NERVES!"

[CALM NOD.]
"I see,
My kind'alah."

"It's just VERY
ANNOYING!"

[NOD.]
[WATCH A HERD OF
CATTLE SLEEPING
IN THE COLD GRASS
ON A LONE
TEXAS PLAIN.]

"What were You
THINKING?"

[SILENCE.]
[PATIENT SIGH.]

"Didn't You WONDER
if all that stuff,
about the JEWS,
in ACTS and...
ROMANS.....
was gonna make
people DISLIKE
THEM?"

[SILENCE.]
[GAZE DOWN UPON
SCRUFFY HEAD OF
CRANKY CHILD.]

"It's REALLY....."

"What, child?"

(Grimmace!)
"Anti.....SEMITIC!"

[CALM GAZE.]

"THAT'S WHAT!"

"Which Part,
Mein kind'alah."

"ALL of IT!"

[TENDER VOICE.]
"Read It,
to Me,
child."

"WHICH PART?"

[LOVING GAZE.]
"All
of It."
***********************
I journeyed
to Damascus....
at midday...
I saw on the way
a light from Heaven,
brighter than the sun,
shining round me...
And when we had
all fallen
to the ground,
I heard a
Voice
saying to me
in the
Hebrew language,
'Saul, Saul,
why do you
presecute
Me?
It hurts you
to kick against
the goads.'
And I said,
Who are you, Lord?
And the Lord said,
I am Jesus.
[Acts 26:12-15]
