At this late date, we're really going to find something that will shock us?
A new 6-session Bible Study that "is bound to change your perceptions of who Jesus is" begins Wednesday, Oct. 29 at St. Mark's United Methodist Church, 126th St. & Rangeline Road in Carmel.
[. . .]
This new study, held from 9:30-11 a.m. each week through Dec.10, is based on Philip Yancey's best selling book, The Jesus I Never Knew. It was developed to be equally enlightening to those who have known Jesus their entire lives and those meeting him for the first time.
Yancey's book tries to discover the "real" Jesus who actually lived and breathed and walked with regular people. Isn't that pointless? Jesus is either central to your religion or he is a historical figure of minor interest. In neither case would his daily life seem to be of much interest. Besides, we all know Jesus would have been a Democratic, pro-choice vegetarian.
