CQOD: 04/18/07 -- Hanson: the final rebellion

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 18, 2007
    [Jesus:] O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not! See, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'
    -- Matthew 23:37-39 (ESV)

    Here [in Matthew 23] is an interpretation of Israel’s history according to which God’s people have always been disobedient and rebellious: their alienation from God, it is clearly implied, is to reach its climax in the murder of the Messiah himself.
    ... Anthony T. Hanson (1916-1991)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, extinguish the rebellious Jerusalem inside me.
