True, He had a meteoric career : worldwide fame within decades that has lasted millennia.  But the word is derived from “eora”, Greek for “hovering in the air”.  Jesus was beyond (“meta”) merely hovering (“eora”).  He ascended right up there, alone and unassisted like the Man from Snowy River’s part-Timor pony.  Thought you’d like to know.  Just another of those tidbits you’ll find on this Blog and nowhere else.  Banjo in the prelude to his best-known ballad was speaking of his poems but he could have been talking of this Blog and its pearls :

Though their merits indeed are but slight,

I shall not repine

If they give you one moment’s delight,

Old comrades of mine.”
