Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
For the session to be discussed on January 31, 2016
In this episode we take a look at the second part of the passage we began discussing last week. The setting is Jesus’ return to his hometown, where he reads scripture and preaches in the synagogue. What did this reveal about Jesus’ identity and purpose? Where are the words of Jesus hard for us to hear?
On this Podcast:
- Daniel references Clarence Jordan story of a wonderfully integrated church, as told in Where Resident Aliens Live, by Stanley Hauerwas and Will Willimon.
- Bert references Clarence Jordan’s Cotton Patch Gospel series, a rendering of the New Testament into mid-20th Century Southern American dialect.
