Behind Closed Doors

Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. ~John 20:19

His healing hands that blessed,
are torn beyond all balm
and we could see
by the wound in His side
that He was no different from any man...

Were baptism sight and sound,
mountaintop experience,
vast hillside picnics
tempest stillings
only hallucinations?

and what about the answers
to "Who do you say that I am?"
the claims to "raise this temple
and in three days..."
or "I and the Father are one"?
Certainly those were only hyperbole.

"Follow Me," He said.
But those footsteps on Galilean dust
only lead to a cross at the place of the skull

but yet...
even now in modern day...
