Do you love Garry Wills? Read his article “Christ Was Not a Christian” here.

He writes: “For two years, Jesus slipped through all the traps set for him. He moved like a fish in the sea of his lower-class fellows. He kept on the move, in the countryside. If I think of music to be heard in the background of his restless mission, it is the scurrying agitato that opens Khachaturian’s violin concerto. He went into cities as into alien territory. He was a man of the margins, never quite fitting in, always ‘out of context.'”

Here’s a nice accompanying piece by Mark Galli called “Was Jesus Mean?”
