Monday of Easter 2 - Luke 4
Somewhere along the way I read the suggestion that "Physician, heal thyself" may have been a reference to the fact that the son of Joseph looked powerless when Joseph died. Which then leads to the response that it was not time for Jesus to heal Joseph, any more than it was time that day in Nazareth to die to save us. He walks away that day, but, thanks be to God, He does not come down off His cross - because that is when it was time to set us free from the oppression of our sin.
