    You see that Jesus was every bit as human as you or me, even subject to emotions of doubt and distress. What a teacher! He demonstrates not as rhe hypocrites who say and who does not practice. What is love but the word of the Father which Jesus received and gave to whosoever he would. Their is no respect of persons with Jesus, the Christ. He came to earth miraculously and went his way sowing
