In Jesus’ public exposure, he exposes the lie of the empire.
In Jesus’ vulnerability, he shows how vulnerable the strength of power and corruption really are.
In Jesus’ thirst, he shows us how greed will always leave us thirsting for more.
In Jesus’ emptiness, he shows us how empty the way of the world really is.
It’s all upside down: an obscure Jewish rabbi challenging a world-dominating regime, and yet several days later, rumors spread that he’s risen from the dead.
~ “Sex God”
43 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” ~ Mark 10:43-45
