Son of Thunder

While perusing my church’s library the other day, I noticed a novel titled, “John – Son of Thunder.” Fascinating how John, who Jesus first nicknamed, “son of thunder,” along with John’s brother, James, would later be known as, “the disciple whom Jesus loved.”

John is most remembered for his verses on love: John 3:16, 1 John 4:7-8. His book is considered one of the first books someone should read if they want to learn of the love of God. Yet, as an early disciple, he was known to ask if he could call down fire from heaven on people. He was arrogant – asking to sit at Jesus’ right hand in heaven. He wanted his troupe to have all of the glory – not wanting outsiders to use Jesus name to help others.

Cool how God helped him to bend his boldness from harming others to loving  others.

I found out that I have Autism upon having a son with the same "disorder." Ironically, I was voted, "Most Likely to Succeed," by my high school classmates. But had I been born now, instead of 40+ years ago, I would have been considered a different sort of special. This site was started to encourage other Autistics and the people who love them .
