The “Finished” Life

 Media Jesus

In considering Jesus, A.E. Whiteham writes in The Discipline and Culture of the Spiritual LIfe:

“Here in this Man is adequate purpose …inward rest, that gives an air of leisure to His crowded life. Above all there is in this Man a secret and a power of dealing with the waste-products of life, the waste of pain, disappointment, enmity, death …making a short life of about thirty years, abruptly cut off, to be a ‘finished’ life. We cannot admire the poise and beauty of this human life, and then ignore the things that made it.”

“THE DISCIPLINE & CULTURE OF THE SPIRITUAL LIFE: A MEMORIAL VOLUME.” (A E. Whitham)
