He warrants a mansion, yet is born in a manger.
He is worth Judean prestige, but grows up in hick Nazareth.
He could be among Jerusalem elites, but teaches ordinary folk ’round Galilee.
He hasn’t sinned, yet participates in a baptism of repentance.
He is owed all taxes, yet pays his taxes.
He deserves a majestic entrance, yet rides in on a donkey.
He is the final judge, yet undergoes a trial.
He doesn’t deserve death, yet dies a shameful execution.
While forgiving his enemies.
And telling a disciple to take care of his mom.
