A LESSON IN SCRIPTURE
In the second chapter of the Book of Luke the story is told of Jesus’ parents, worried and seeking him for
three days, finding him and complaining, to which Jesus said: “How is it that you sought me? Know you not
that I must be about my Father’s business?” I ask you not to put yourself in that frame of mind. Your earthly
parents seek you and, at the tender age of twelve, you dare to say to them: “I must be about my Father’s

so on who lived unnumbered years ago, but about the individual you! The 4th chapter of the Book of John
begins with a discussion between the Lord Jesus Christ and a woman of Samaria about a well and water.
After this discussion the disciples say to Jesus: “Master you have had nothing to eat” and he replies: “I have
food you know not of. My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.”

Father. “He who sees me, sees he who sent me. I came out from the Father and came into the world. Again I
leave the world and return to the Father. He who sees me sees the Father, for I and the Father are one.”

“Male/female made he them and called their name Man.” Read it carefully in the 5th chapter of Genesis.
Creating Man to express himself, God comes into the world to express and finish what he conceived in the
beginning. Conceiving a state and knowing it takes a man to express it; God sent himself from the depth
