three takes

 

There

are three miracles of our

Brother Jesus not yet recorded in the Book:

the first that he was a man like you and me; the second that

he had a sense of humor; and the third that he

knew he was a conqueror though

conquered.

 

Kahlil Gibran

 

Why do

people hate Jesus,

or at least prefer the ethereal dead

version known as Christ? Because Jesus made

outrageous demands: Love your enemy,

renounce material possessions,

give all you have to

the poor.

 

Barbara Ehrenreich

 

A

conservative is

someone who admires radicals

centuries after they’re

dead.
