Jesus walked the earth a long time before smartphones. So we don’t have any video on Youtube of Jesus’ miracles or sermons. All we have are the recollections of his disciples. Words on a page, passed down through centuries. Just like texts and emails today lake intonation and body language, the voice of Jesus in the Gospels are just words. Not even emojis! So we don’t always know if Jesus is speaking with righteous anger or gentle compassion.
I’d like to recommend that we hear Jesus’ voice in the Gospels with a lot of gentleness and compassion. Jesus was harsh to those who were keeping others away from him and the Father. But he was gentle with his own. He is the good shepherd. He’s gentle. He lays down his life for his sheep. What is different if you hear compassion and love in Jesus’ voice, rather than anger or annoyance? What happens when we see a smile on Jesus’ face as he tells parables and converses with his disciple? We have a much more approachable savior. We feel safer in his grace. We become more like him.
