If we had been among Jesus’ listeners on the hillside we would have been powerfully impacted by his relevance. To the woman at the well, Jesus said “Let’s talk about water”. To the fishermen, Jesus said, “Let’s talk about fishing: I want to make you fishers of men.” To the taxmen, He said, “Let’s talk about money.”
