The Bible is both one of the most read books on earth and one of the most misunderstood. It is disturbing when it challenges our comfort zone, and at once comforts us with a merciful love that calls all of us as disciples. Perhaps one theme here is vocation, and another (Psalm 71) a humble life submission to God. Neither road is set out as th easy road to travel. The very next thing Jesus does is to call his disciples to take this road of disturbing and radical love with him.
