The Conversion of Saint Paul, 2015
Preacher: The Rev’d David Curry | Series: Guest Preacher, Saints Days, Saints’ Day
“He who devotes himself to the study of the law of the Most High will seek out the wisdom of all the ancients.”
Epiphany, the great 17th century Bishop of Durham, John Cosin, notes, turns our thoughts from considering “His coming in the flesh that was God” to “His being God that was come in the flesh”; in short, “to turn ourselves from his humanity below to his divinity above.” The entire season of Epiphany, whether short or long, is about teaching and learning. The gifts of the Magi-Kings are “sacred gifts of mystic meaning” that teach us about the one to whom they are given.
