Quarterly Quote of the Month about Jesus for this Week

“In both his teaching and his very presence, Jesus of Nazareth presented the ultimate criticism of the royal consciousness. He has, in fact, dismantled the dominant culture and nullified its claims. The way of his ultimate criticism is his decisive solidarity with marginal people and the accompanying vulnerability required by that solidarity. The only solidarity worth affirming is solidarity characterized by the same helplessness they know and experience.”

~Walter Brueggemann

  1. From Dr. G:

    Interesting. Solidarity with helplessness AS SUCH, might suggest an early phase of existentialism. A feeling that nothing was falling into order or place; existential angst.

    Was B. headed that way at all?
