CQOD: 03/16/08 -- Kirk: street confrontation

Christian Quotation of the Day

March 16, 2008
Palm Sunday
    And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
    -- Luke 9:51,52 (KJV)

    The entrance into Jerusalem [on Palm Sunday] has all the elements of the theatre of the absurd: the poor king; truth comes riding on a donkey; symbolic actions—even parading without a permit! Also, when Jesus “set his face to go to Jerusalem,” what was involved was direct action, an open confrontation and public demonstration of the incompatibility of evil with the Kingdom of God.
    ... David Kirk (b.1935), Quotations from Chairman Jesus, p. 61 [1969]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have conquered the world.
