Does ‘all’ really mean all? That is a question Jesus’ earliest disciples surely wrestled with. There was a time they didn’t think he meant children, but he did. There was another time they didn’t think he meant Samaritans, but he did. Prostitutes? Yep, them too. Lepers? Check. Roman centurions? Sure. Tax collectors? You bet. In both word and deed, for Jesus ‘all’ really did mean all. Perhaps that’s why this version of the Disciples of Christ chalice really struck me. ‘All’ is a mighty expansive word for only having three letters.
