This is a really good question. There are lots of people I would like to meet. As I love my sports it would be retired AFL footballers and cricketers, old time Olympic athletes, and some bodybuilders from the era before steroids were introduced to name a few.
But far and away the most important historical figure I would like to meet is Jesus. I would love to spend a week or so with Him on the road with his disciples.
I would love to just to watch and listen…and maybe ask the occasional question. It would so good to hear His words and His prayers and see His miracles first hand in the historical context.
To see His parables actually spoken. To see the peoples faces when they were healed or raised to life. To see people set free from demonic oppression and return to their normal selves. I can only imagine what that would be like.
So for me, my historical figure would be Jesus. I know Him in my heart and from the pages of the Bible, but to actually walk with Him on the road would be priceless.
