We all had heard such good things about him and were anxious to see and experience his performance for ourselves. I finally found a spot that would provide some shelter from the sweltering sun and sat down and got comfortable. Just as I was nodding off, squeals pierced the air, forcing my eyes back open. â€œThere he is!â€ I looked up unsure of what to expect.
The person I saw before me was not the image I had formed in my mind. He was not the statuesque elaborately dressed man I had visualized, but was instead a casually dressed man of average height and weight, one that could have easily blended into the crowd. I sat up straight, rubbed my eyes, stretched, and prepared myself for what was in store.
He began with a parable about the sower, continued with the story of the Good Samaritan, and ended with the parable of the lost sheep. There were some amongst us who didnâ€™t fully understand the stories, but he was happy to further explain them. He even took the time for a question and answer session.
After story time the entertainer put on a â€œmagicâ€ show. It was an awesome experience! A man who had been blind since birth was suddenly able to see, a lame man rose from his seat and walked, a ten-year-old mute spoke his first words, to his parentâ€™s delight, and get this, a woman who had a serious condition that she had been dealing with for twelve years, one that none of the doctors she had visited had been able to cure, was instantly healed simply by touching his cloak.
Dusk came and Jesus had to leave. He had to continue his tour the following day and needed to get some rest. Some of the crowd stayed behind, marveling at what they had seen and heard and others gathered their belongings and headed home. I had a long way to go so I started home, excited to get back to my village to share the dayâ€™s happenings.
