They made an interesting family, and a simple dinner at their house highlighted how different people responded—and still respond—to Jesus. Resting in him, service, intense affection—and an anger that wouldn’t be calmed by anything less than a person’s destruction—all at the same time. Jesus evokes something different in each of us, but rarely does he evoke nothing!
