"I was searching for a dead man; one morning I discovered a living man"
Musicologist Detective in Searching for Sugar Man
“He is not here; he has risen…”
The Angel re: Jesus, Matthew 28:6, NIV
“He was just a wandering spirit around the city, I thought that he was, like, not much more than a kind of homeless person.”
Dan Di Maggio, Detroit bartender, Searching for Sugar Man
“The servant grew up before God—a scrawny seedling,
a scrubby plant in a parched field.
There was nothing attractive about him,
nothing to cause us to take a second look.
He was looked down on and passed over, a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand.
One look at him and people turned away.
We looked down on him, thought he was scum.”
A prophecy about Jesus, Isaiah 53:2-3, MSG
“He took all that torment, all that agony, all that confusion and pain, and he transformed it something into something beautiful."
Rodriguez’s construction boss, Searching for Sugar Man
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9, NLT
