In all the words that have ever been written or said about Jesus, his living FAITH is seldom contemplated. The Urantia Books teaches that "Jesus enjoyed a sublime and wholehearted faith in God. He experienced the ordinary ups and downs of mortal existence, but he never religiously doubted the certainty of God's watchcare and guidance. ... His faith was neither traditional nor merely intellectual; it was wholly personal and purely spiritual."


Further it states, "The faith of Jesus attained the purity of a child's trust. His faith was so absolute and undoubting that it responded to the charm of the contact of fellow beings and to the wonders of the universe. His sense of dependence on the divine was so complete and so confident that it yielded the joy and the assurance of absolute personal security. There was no hesitating pretense in his religious experience. In this giant intellect of the full-grown man the faith of the child reigned supreme in all matters relating to the religious consciousness. It is not strange that he once said, "Except you become as a little child, you shall not enter the kingdom." Notwithstanding that Jesus' faith was childlike, it was in no sense childish."

In these tumultuous times, when there is so much doubt and despair in the world, isn't it amazing and timely to contemplate the pure and unadulterated faith of Jesus? We think so. Please join us in the next few weeks as we explore together Paper 196 of The Urantia Book, an amazing tribute to a remarkable faith.... the faith of Jesus.
