Resources for Start Course: Session 4 – Jesus

This is for Session 4 of the current START course (24 February 2022).

Below are eight different depictions of Jesus. Does one stand out for you? Why?

St Ephrem the Syrian on Jesus:

Whom have we, Lord, like you—
The Great One who became small, the Wakeful who slept,
The Pure One who was baptized, the Living One who died,
The King who abased himself to ensure honour for all.
Blessed is your honour!

It is right that man should acknowledge your divinity,
It is right for heavenly beings to worship your humanity.
The heavenly beings were amazed to see how small you became,
And earthly ones to see how exalted.
