Time‚Äôs Visitor feels time upon his head. Tuesday of Holy Week. Sunday‚Äôs parade. Monday‚Äôs prophetic Temple escapade. And three days hence ‚Äúbeloved son‚ÄĚ is dead. (This was the designation Mark had heard From Peter‚Äôs lips: ‚ÄúChrist said ‚Äėbeloved son.‚Äô‚ÄĚ) Now, since his earthly race is nearly done, No calembour must cloud Messiah‚Äôs word. So we require no fancy exegesis, Creation‚Äôs gifts are here; the Covenant; Moses; the prophets; foul sin‚Äôs great affront; Pater absconditus, Father of Jesus. He knew the issue of these words, so clear, He even knew the time of chanticleer.
