This week is Chapter 22 in McLaren. It reflects on the role and calling of Jesus. While Christians have often understood Jesus as Savior, he was not the kind of military savior that Jews were accustomed too. Instead of the military judges between Joshua and King Saul, Jesus was more like the prophets that often held the monarchy in check. He did signs like Moses, Elijah and Elisha. He taught like Jeremiah. He didn't raise a sword, but he often raised his voice and raised the souls of his followers and his disciples. May our souls rise as well as we continue living the story that Jesus taught us and showed us. Spirit help us!
