In Paul’s great letter on Christian love in 1 Corinthians, 
the apostle says that when he was a child, he thought with the limitations of a child.
At that tender age we are like a child looking in a mirror and having no clear understanding of Christian belief, nor of our own development in the faith.
Then, he says, one day we will see Jesus face to face, with a new understanding, and thanksgiving for the revelation.
Today, as part of our follow up to the Easter story, we trace how moods and attitudes of various onlookers changed.
We start from some Glasgow colloquialisms leaving us wondering just who we were dancing with.
We look at some of the searing criticisms about Jesus...”THIS MAN...
Peter, a close disciple is still lacking in clarity;- “I do not know.... THE MAN..
The mirror is becoming less glazed for Pilate’s wife;-
This JUST MAN...
The mirror is not much clearer for Mary in the resurrection garden...”the gardener ...
Thankfully the scales fall from the eyes of the onlookers
Thomas finally gets it right;- “my Master and my Lord
(Rev. William Izett)
