When prophet Mohammed came after hundreds of years after Jesus, he did not have to prove Jesus existed because everyone at that time knew. The underlying difference is that one is a prophet – a great one at that; and the other, the Son of God! But that all changed when Jesus entered her life and brought her son back to her. Told through a train wreck of regret and longing, the stories in Jesus' Son unapologetically expose the malignancies of the human heart. For the widow of Nain, there was the hope of living with the care and support of her grown son. Stories Jesus Told: The Persistent Widow Stories Jesus Told: The Wise and Foolish Builders. The unnamed narrator is only known to us by his nickname: Fuckhead. With the death of her only son, the widow in our story was once again victimized. We hear the stories of our King Eternal life, for us he'll win. In the name of the +Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. �There's just statements about the Father, Son and Holy Spirit,” he explained. Her despair must have been visible. We share his meal and pray with him. The final story is the beautiful redemption of the heartbreak of the Garden and of Israel. Jesus could directly command the dead man to get up. It is the gospel story, where Jesus, God's Son, proves faithful when humanity could not. But at the start of the story we hear, her son has died, too.
