Not far from the Kingdom of God

This is one of my most beloved episodes in the Gospels - when Jesus and a Scribe gradually and unexpectedly recognise that they are both on the same side.

Here is the simply wonderful dramatisation from the web site:


There is so much that is good about this. It strikes me as very clearly an eye-witness account - so vividly does it jump across the intervening two millennia. It shows that friends may be found among one's enemies - by those with discerning hearts. It shows great generosity of spirit on both sides; and love of truth.
