Quarterly Quote of the Month about Jesus for this Week

Paul more or less totally ignores Jesus' particular acts, teachings, parables.... never in his writings does he engage in hermeneutics, in probing into the "deeper meaning" of this or that parable or act of Jesus. What matters to him is not Jesus as a historical figure, only the fact that he died on the Cross and rose from the dead--after confirming Jesus' death and resurrection, Paul goes on  to his true Leninist business, that of organizing the new party called the Christian community.
