How Jesus is Portrayed by the Gospels

Jesus is portrayed by the gospels as a one-man apocalypse, the place where heaven and earth meet, the place where and the means by which people come and find themselves renewed and restored as the people of the one God, the place where power is redefined, turned upside down or perhaps the right way up.”  –N.T. Wright, How God Became King

    N. T. Wright is a great wordsmith. Simply reading him is pleasurable, but when his subject matter is Jesus it’s wonderfully inspirational.

    Just read this one. Kingdom and cross, cross and kingdom. Inspirational indeed.
