About 2,000 before Jesus came to earth God began to reveal to Abraham what I believe is, from a human perspective, the most startling and perplexing idea in the history of the universe.  This Sunday, in the eighth chapter of Mark, we will hear Jesus try to help his disciples understand this divine truth in greater detail.

What is this startling idea?  I think Charles Wesley came as close to capturing the depth of its perplexity as anyone when, in 1738, he wrote the words to one of his most treasured hymns.
