Oh dear, I just made this very point in a resource I wrote for one of my classes. I swear I didn’t plagiarize!! I’ll definitely be using this video to back up my point, though.
I like to imagine what it was like to be a friend of Jesus when he walked the earth. I can believe that Mary, Martha, Lazarus and all of his friends were thrilled just to be in his presence. I can imagine them laughing and crying, eating and praying together.
