The Importance of an Ear…..

Surely, the man was full of the poison he’d heard from his master. After all, he was a bondservant, pledged to his master.  But in that moment, the one very brief moment, when he was looking directly into the eyes of the One who was about to die – the Lamb being led to slaughter – the One whose very words “I Am” had just knocked all of the soldiers in the garden to the ground – reaching out to replace his ear….

What did he see? What did he hear? How was he changed? Did he run into hiding? Did he stand by and watch, side by side with his master the high priest? Did he wonder at all he saw? Did he question his allegiance to his master?

When Jesus reached out to heal him, did He lean closer and say, “Malchus, let him who has ears to hear, hear!”???

  1. I always think of him when reading that part of the gospel… how was he changed? How about the ones who returned to life after the resurrection? Where are their stories? I want to read them!

    🙂 I know – or what about the people who had family members that were up and about?!!! There are SO many AMAZING stories that Scripture just allows a peek at – that I can’t help but wonder more about. (Which of course ends up becoming a “story” I tell someone LOL)

    I ESP think of Malchus because he was bondservant to the high priest. B.o.n.d.s.e.r.v.a.n.t. Pledged to serve him forever….what does that mean for the remainder of his life?! How could be remain bondservant after seeing Jesus face to face like that?!!! I dunno… will SOOOO cool to hear the real stories when we reach heaven!!! 😀
