The following conversation took place during a family van ride the other day: Gideon : “Daddy, is Jesus big?” Me: “Yes, Gid – Jesus is very big.” Gid: “Then how did they kill Him?” Me: “sigh … The answer is very long, will you listen to me if I tell you?” Gid: “No … [pause] … actually yes.” Me: “Well before Jesus died, He had a normal body just like you and me. He was as big as a normal man. That’s how they killed Him. But He didn’t stay dead, did He? They put Him in the tomb for 3 days, and then what happened to Him?” Gid: “He rose back to life.” Me: “Yes! And when God raised Him back to life …” Gid: “God?... Jesus is God!” Me: “Yes, He certainly is, but I meant God the Father … when God the Father raised Him back to life, He gave Him a new body – a wonderful, glorified body. And that new body is really big.” Gid: … [after a minute of contemplating, I see in the rear view mirror what looks like Gideon holding up both arms and making the sign-language shape for ‘I love you’ with his fingers.
