While I was driving home this evening a song came on the radio that kind of irritated me. I think the song is called "My Jesus". I don't know for sure. It is kind of a preachy song which is why it was so irksome but it poses a question I find very thought provoking. The question that this preachy song poses is; what does your Jesus look like? So I wondered, what does Jesus look like to me? Immediately I knew. My Jesus can really nail the high notes. He looks exactly like Ted Neely, the actor/singer from the movie version of Jesus Christ Superstar. I can't help it. It is seared into my brain cells. When I was nine years old my Dad took me to see the movie and I was kind of blown away by it. It was the closest I would ever see my dad get to anything even remotely religious in my childhood and I grabbed that memory and am still holding on.
So I wonder if my kids will think of Jim Caviezel.
What does your Jesus look like?
