Good News at Last

Countless generations: one people
one family. Finally, the one person,
long-promised by God-driven prophets.
Predicted, yet unpredictable,
foretold, but unforeseen: God with us!

Startling joy for star-gazing sages.
Flowers’ splendor outshines Solomon’s.
Jesus portrays Law’s taproot: whole love.
Some sell all for hidden treasure joy.

Master Healer knows none in Israel
with faith like the Roman centurion’s.
New rabbi out-questions law experts,
exposes dead-weight hearts underneath
polished facades and picayune rules.

Heaven’s all-renewing reign begins:
disciples empowered to heal all
kinds of illness, charged to disciple
and baptize people of all nations.
