The Bible attributes some pretty odd sayings to Jesus. Over the next days and weeks I will be looking at the strange, sometimes bizarre, often politically incorrect things Jesus reportedly said in the Gospels with a view to understanding a bit more of who He was and how He might be speaking into our lives today. Will you join me in the exploration by checking back periodically and lending your voice to the conversation?
This week, we’ll look at Jesus’ rebuke of his beloved disciple, Peter: ”Get behind me, Satan,” he said to the man who would later become known as “the Rock” of the early church. Stay tuned.
