We all experience Jesus differently…

We all experience Jesus in a different way—he is seen through many eyes, heard through many ears, and loved by many hearts. Inevitably, our attempts to describe this experience are going to be highly impressionistic, probably conveying more information about ourselves than about Jesus. Our backgrounds, our hopes and fears, our understanding of the world—all these things colour our impressions of Jesus.

Alister McGrath, from Understanding Jesus, p. 33
