Reflections Along the Jesus Way

April 9, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

“The kingdom of Rome, spurred on by the kingdom of the Jewish religious culture, joined forces to get rid of him – through torture, humiliation and publicly shaming him before they finished him off (or so they thought) by mercilessly crucifying him.  He responded by accepting and receiving their (and our own) vengeance and hostility.  He soaked it in.  He absorbed and assimilated all human hostility and hatred … and he forgave it.  For Jesus the end of violence is not more violence.  The end of violence is love.”
