An Enigma to some

He could weep and be sad,
Even  his own sometimes thought him mad;
Turned over tables,took issue with friends,
Oft-times mixing with the ill-repute-
Wise as a serpent,innocent as a dove,
Speaking the truth with a heart of love.

Well said Brian, Jesus example for us is an endless source of encouragement, and courage to witness truth to power, and teaching in a powerful way, the humble respond in kind, as you say an enigma, for the proud. Bravo!
