“Jesus was curiously unpreoccupied about the future of those who believed through him. His attention went rather to those who were deprived: to the running sores of the leper; to the milky, sightless eye; to the dragging, withered leg; to the slack-mouthed village idiot; to the shrunken belly; even to the dead man in the grave. With all these he shared life as they had need.”
