Just a brief thought on the resurrection (because it’s a season, after all).
…Not long after his death hi associates started to claim that he was now in charge, for real. And they started to act as if it was true. This isn’t about ‘religion’ in the sense the Western world has imagined for over two hundred years. This is about everything: life, art, the universe, justice, death, money. It’s about politics, philosophy, culture, and being human. It’s about a God who is so much bigger than the ‘God’ of ordinary modern ‘religion’ that it’s hardly possible to think of the two in the same breath. (N.T. Wright, Simply Jesus)
