Paradox

What was it that Jesus found attractive in fallen women like Mary Magdalene and the woman by the well?  He recognized the hopelessness of their situation and being a man with feeling, he sympathized with them.  Christ, as we will never understand, was a man with feeling.

I once mentioned that God is a being who loves paradox (an apparent contradiction).  Christ fulfilled the requirement for that in being at the same time God and a man.  As a man he had an uncanny insight into what makes humans tick.  I hope He sympathizes with me on the last day.
