jesus today

check out more of this, here.

first question that popped into my head when i saw this was: should i be offended by this? then i thought about the image for a little bit more and realized what i was actually looking at.

that my first thought  was regarding the offensive nature of this image is particularly telling, and i realize that much of what i think of jesus has been a bit too domesticated. indeed, jesus would probably make a habit of making me cringe.

  1. you’re right about the domesticated jesus figure that we’ve got tucked away in our consciousness. kind of informs the way we do theology and ministry doesn’t it? good find.
