But the voice of God himself answers, telling them that no shrines are required– all they have to do is listen to Jesus. At the sound of God’s voice the disciples fall down, terrified. But Jesus tells them to rise and have no fear. So when in doubt, let’s listen for Jesus. Chances are, he’ll tell us we have no reason to fear.
