He sounds like someone who was ambivalent about this Jewish faith. In a time when he was "broken" he read a book by a Christian (Catholic) and had a talk with some Christian biker, he felt he had been ministered to. He had.
He didn't talk about a religious experience or epiphany of truth. He doesn't talk about the faith of Catholicism or a life changing realization, but that he always thought Jesus was cool.
I think you're going to find, in the end, he's just as ambivalent with his new found religion as he was with his old. I do hope his daughter gets better, though.
No one who converts to the faith is ambivalent. His "epiphany" is he discovered the Truth.
Especially because Christianity is the youngest of the three main religions by several thousand years. So hardly "the Truth" since it borrowed ideas from the other two plus from older religions such as Paganism.
There is evidence, however, that when Jesus Christ returned to India (after surviving and healing from the wounds of the crucixiion) and gathered adherents, Islam became the "new" way to glorify Christ. Go figure.
He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.
I have always been of the belief that Jesus didn't die on the cross, but was healed by those caravans of aloe brought to him.
