The Water Carrier

“It’s Passover time again. My master has asked me to prepare a room for thirteen people. The next instruction he gave me was a strange one. I had to walk through the city carrying a jar of water. I would be approached by two men who would follow me to the house and then would ask my master ‘ The teacher asks where is the guest room where I can eat the Passover with my disciples.’ “

“It happened just as he said and I recognised the two disciples of the man who they are calling the Messiah. So we had this great man dining in our house. I didn’t actually see him that day but I was terribly sad later when I heard he had been crucified. I thought he was a good man.”

“The rumour was, or was it the truth, was that he had risen from the dead on the third day. I am now seriously asking, was he the Messiah? I few weeks later I heard that he had ‘gone up into heaven’. I think I need to find out more about this man, or maybe Messiah.”
