Reflections Along the Jesus Way

August 8, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

“According to religious expectations and definitions, many of the parables of Jesus make the wrong person the hero.  Who stars in the parables of Jesus?  Who shines?  The wasteful prodigal son, not the obedient elder brother – the good Samaritan (despised by religion) rather than Jewish rabbis (admired and honored by religion) – the scorned and reviled tax collector who did not even look up to heaven as he prayed rather than the righteous Pharisee – the poor, homeless beggar named Lazarus and not the rich man.”
