Why Returning to Our Roots is so Meaningful?

Why is it so meaningful to return to where your ancestors are from? To visit places you only know from stories & pics?
I’ve asked myself that every time I thought to travel to my grandpa’s hometown in Iran.  Standing in front of the villa he used to own feels like I’m visiting an old friend; sitting in the ornate Viennese-style café he and my granny used to frequent makes my heart soar. In Niavaran, I am not only able to see & touch the past, I can be inside of it.

Nevertheless, why would I feel such emotion & travel to a place I myself never lived in? A place whose memory I only inherited? In May of this year I finally traveled to Tehran from Los Angeles.

When I set out to visit the sites of the family’s past, I was worried that the house might not be there anymore.
Thankfully, it was still there in blue-gray shingles tucked into the bend of a road. Presumably it has stood empty since after World War II, when our family, along w everyone else of German heritage, left Iran.

Taking Home a Piece of the past I fell in love w the intricate patterns of the slate shingles on the outside walls of the upper floors; now more of them were dangling. I even found two of them on the ground, entirely intact, and I took one home. I’m holding that shingle in my hand now.

I could just see my Great-Great-Grand father standing at this Railing. On the mill’s covered walkway, shards of glass and siding crunched under my feet. According to Opa, that's my gradpa, his father always wore a carnation in his lapel, an oddly dapper outfit for the owner of a vast land, but—“he loved flowers.” Opa’s mother was more practical: She was generally exasperated with Opa, who “had only books in his head” & loved to sit in one of the windows, munching butter sandwiches as he read.

The place’s main door creaked open when I pushed it & I poked around.The rooms stood silent & empty, draped in cobwebs, sunlight streaming through the broken windows. I was astounded by how moving it was to be walking through the same rooms my Opa had played in, to now be inside the very walls that contained his childhood stories. The image of all family life buzzing about! Buildings & places last longer than we do, & this decrepit house, this very spot on Earth contained my history & allowed me for a few moments, to touch the past. I didn’t trust the integrity of the stairs to visit the “big room” upstairs where Opa used to sleep, unperturbed by the mill’s erstwhile noises: the gong of the grandfather clock, the rush of the mill stream & the churn of it's wheel.

Outside again, I searched for the mill stone, stumbling through the thickets around the building until I teetered on the rim of an overgrown concrete grid. A jungle of shrubbery beckoned below. As I was contemplating whether I was really standing on the former mill contraption, I reached into my pants pocket for a tissue. With it, my car key slipped out & dropped into the porous ground below me.

“This didn’t just happen!” I said.
I groped among the weeds & peered into few holes. “It’s gone. I can’t see a thing.”“There should be an opening there to operate the wheel.”
“How extraordinary,” I thought “That this should happen here, in Opa’s place!”
I kept marveling at the fact that I had lost the key among the remnants of my family’s past. Driving away, it felt as if my anxiety over the key’s recovery had left a bit of my heart there.
It seems to me that returning to my roots filled a hole in my understanding of the past. My family’s house was the manifestation of a hole in my past, a property that was abandoned. 
How symbolic then, that my car key should drop into a hole at that very site & very hole where the mill’s turbine used to churn to generate the family’s livelihood. I felt as if that key, flying by the layers of concrete fell from my sunny world to the dank cavern below, stitched together the decades of family history. Now I lived there a little, too. And what ties you more to a place than a story?

Who was Jesus of Nazareth?

Time magazine calls Jesus the most influential figure in history. “Regardless what anyone may personally think or believe about him, Jesus of Nazareth has been the dominant figure in the history of Western culture for almost twenty centuries." And for the 2.3 billion Christians in the world, the gospels tell the remarkable story of God coming to earth to rescue humanity.
The gospels of Luke and Matthew offer some fascinating details about him.

1. Jesus gets his name from an angel
“The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.’ Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.
But the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end’ (Luke 1:28–33)
2. Jesus was born of a virgin
Matthew’s gospel claims that Jesus’ conception was miraculous, & points to this miracle as a fulfilment of Isaiah’s prophecy: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, & will call him Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14).
Not only was Jesus born to a virgin, but Matthew saw this as a critical piece of evidence that Jesus was actually the Messiah.

3. Jesus’ family tree has some pretty shady characters
Jesus chose a pretty inauspicious family line:
Jacob: Habitual schemer
Judah: Collaborated with his brothers to sell the youngest sibling into slavery
Rahab: A prostitute
David: Had a man killed to cover up an adulterous affair
Solomon: Married 700 women and turned his heart away from the Lord
Rehoboam: “Did evil bc he had not set his heart on seeking the Lord” (2 Chron. 12:14)
Abijah: “Committed all the sins his father had done before him” (1 Kings 15:3)

4. Jesus had several (half) siblings
The gospels tell us that Jesus had brothers (Matt. 12:46, Lk. 8:19, Mk. 3:31). Matthew even tells us the brother’s names, and mentions His sisters:
“Isn’t his mother’s name Mary & aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?” (Matthew 13:55–56)

5. Jesus claimed to be God
Since the beginning, the Christian church has considered Jesus to be God in the flesh. Did Jesus claim to be God? Yes!
In one instance, Jesus called himself by the very name God used when he spoke to Moses from the burning bush (Ex. 3:14):
“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” (John 8:58)
The Pharisees clearly understood Jesus’ claims: “For this reason they tried all the more to kill him."

6. Jesus was worshipped as God
Not only did Jesus claim to be God, but the disciples worshipped Jesus as God: “Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God’” (Matthew 14:33)
Thomas said to him, ‘My Lord and my God!’” (John 20:27–28)

7. Jesus raised three people from death
It’s hard to think of a more dramatic miracle than raising someone from death. The gospels record three times that Jesus performed this feat:
The widow of Nain’s son (Luke 7:11–17) This is the first resurrection Jesus performed. her only son. Jesus spoke to the man in the coffin, “Young man, I say to you, get up!” He turned the whole town’s mourning into dancing.
Jairus’ daughter (Luke 8:52–56)
Jairus, a leader of the synagogue, wants the Lord to come to his house. Jairus’ daughter dies. Jesus raises her. Lazarus (John 11).

8. God spoke to Jesus audibly three times
There are three moments in the gospels where God spoke out loud to Jesus. At His baptism, At the Transfiguration, before the crucifixion.

9. Only one miracle is recorded in all four gospels
There are more than 40 miracles recorded in the gospels: Jesus feeding 5000 ppl w only two fish and one loaf of bread.
