Recognition response. An individual has it or they don't. Seems to me the Great psychiatrist Alfred Adler coined the term but one of the good ones did.
Jesus accepted the fact, surrendered to it really I suppose, that he could share the truth of the way to collective joy, Jesianity, and he could not control whether the individuals in front of him sought or did not.
But that his, jesus, responsibility, and that of his interns, is to be acutely aware that their opportunity is to find someone that has the recognition response for Jesianity, and if so, to engage, and if not, to resume the search.
