29 Jesus Christ is My Hero

September 30, 2021

In this episode we talk about how we are naturally inclined to look up to certain people, and have them as our role models. We also consider how God, in taking our human nature, intended to become in Christ our most perfect role model, our ideal man, our hero. He lived like us, he suffered like us, and even more than us. He wanted to be close to us, and share our life, so we could look up to Him and see in Him everything we should aim for.
