Following a short video clip of Bishop Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church in the U.S., is a reflection addressing the discomfort of loving the MYSTERY. Below the video you will find my notes for the reflection.
Although the Bible gives us insights into what Jesus was thinking between the time he entered into Jerusalem and the night he spent in the Garden of Gethsemane, we can’t totally relate. But what if we look at the “ordinary” people who witnessed the Passion events…the women around Jesus and his disciples? Or the “bad” guys…Judas, Pilate, and Caiaphas? If we look closely at the people who were part of Jesus’ life during the last days before the crucifixion—their relationships and roles in the story—how might that deepen our understanding of what happened? In Entering the Passion of Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story to help us fill in the blanks.
