I was just noticing that many bible characters had widely different styles. For example Moses was unique in being the messenger of so many miraculous curses and deaths. John the baptist almost practiced the self asceticism of a monk. Jesus was healing everyone while eating and drinking things the Baptist renounced. He also shared his personal and warm thoughts with prostitutes and tax collectors!?
We seem to have striking and differing 'external styles' and practices at play. My question is do these external practices express their peculiar messages?
