Jesus said some radical things during his life, but his heavenly Father made them turn out all right. Some people walked away from him when he said the faithful should eat his body and drink his blood.
At the last supper his true meaning partially came out when he held bread in his hand and said, “This is my body.” We are still trying to figure out the ramifications of that.
Whatever he meant, I receive it without question for he has done untold good for us humans. A child, as he said, might take it better than I with my adult predispositions. Heaven is that far beyond our ken.
