    I love how Jesus had side-bar (private) discussions with His disciples. While the multitude was blinded to open truth of Jesus’ parables, He took the time to answer fully the questions of those who would be tasked with perpetuating His message after He left this physical world. We have very little glimpse into His interaction with His INNER circle (Peter, James, and John) but from what we do get to read seems to indicate that the three of them were exposed to even more of the Truth than were the others. I sometimes wonder ‘what it took’ to become part of the inner circle? Did Jesus particularly choose those three for that express purpose? Or, did were they allowed that kind of access to Him because THEY sought HIM out most deeply and frequently? I know these are questions that will remain until Heaven. But, someone once told me, “If you wanted to be closer to Jesus, you would be. We are all given the degree of spirituality that we seek.” I don’t know if that is true…but it is something that drives my ‘seeking’.

      That is a good question. I will have to add it to my list of “bench” questions too.
