Afterward he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’
But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves,
‘This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.’
Imagine if you somehow turned into a fish, but retained your intellect as a human. Off the bat, you would suffer internally because you can no longer express your emotions and cognition through a fish body. You would also no longer be able to walk or run.
Next, you as a fish lived among other fishes. Afterward, those other fishes somehow betrayed and tortured you till your death. You ended up dying for them.
Juxtaposing this strange story with what Jesus did for us doesn’t even do it justice. However, it gives us a glimpse into how much humility Jesus had as God.
Imagining ourselves becoming fishes and dying for the fishes to save them is still a finite gap, because it is something we can conceptualize and fathom. However, the mysterious act of God becoming man, is infinite. If is something we can never even come close to comprehending. Lord, we thank you for the Word made Flesh.
