"The people would scoff at anyone who told them the messiah lay in the arms of a teenager on the outskirts of their village. They were all too busy to consider the possibility. Those who missed His Majesty's arrival that night missed it not because of evil acts or malice; no, they missed it because they simply weren't looking. Little has changed in the last two thousand years, has it?" Max Lucado, GOD CAME NEAR, p 11.
"He came unto his own, and his own received him not." JOHN 1.11.
