This time he really went berserk.  He knew it had to be that town because the chief priests and the scribes had told him Bethlehem was the place where the Christ was to be born. " "Suppose I were," I challenged him. " "Ask any ox," he laughed.  Nobody does in Nazareth except the tax collector.  You might even jump off the pinnacle of the temple to win friends and followers, expecting God Almighty to send his angels to save you from killing yourself!  He could have established universal peace! " "The devil is usually reasonable," he answered dryly.

You have lost your mind," said his father. " Choking, the son stood up. " said his father once more, his voice cracking under the strain.  From below came an almost animal cry, so elemental was the pain of it, and I knew that he had told his mother.

I asked the father.  Many he had healed in Galilee, we had heard, but very few in Nazareth. " I asked. "Because so few had any faith in him," suggested the shepherd. " "Or for the Son of God," the shepherd remarked.  Yet if he could see, why not I?  Their eyes met, glittering in the starlight. " In the silence that followed I was conscious of only two things, the heavy breathing of the father and the tortured face of his son.  "I am going," he said. " I asked him. " I pleaded.
