THE WILD CHRIST NOBODY OWNS

Jesus in Glory

This is an excerpt from my novel, The Wild Christ Nobody Owns. It is available in print or Kindle versions from Amazon.com

Chapter 91

The Action of Love
Age 31
(from The Wild Christ Nobody Owns)

Jesus called Sarah, who was as shapely and beautiful as the finest mare in a king’s stables. And he said, “Look into this woman’s face and tell me what you see.”

They looked at her for a moment and one by one averted their eyes. And he said, “Why won’t you look at her?”

One of them said, “It is not lawful to gaze at a woman to lust after her.”

“Is this all she is then, just an object of your lust and cause of fear? Is this the good fruit of your many rules and laws? You,” he said to the oldest man amongst them, “Look again.”

Sarah went and knelt down close to him and began to gaze into his eyes. At first his eyes shifted this way and that, and then he began to see her. She said, “Relax. All is well. I want nothing from you, nor you from me but only this. See me and let me see you.”

The old man began to see her, and his face relaxed, and he began to chuckle and felt a great relief. Then he looked more carefully and saw the Love in her and felt a great Love arising in his heart. She moved slowly and put her arms around him and held him. He sighed and felt what he had longed to feel since he was a child. The other men could not help but feel the goodness of what was happening.
