Jesus the Crescendo C6 2018

What makes Jesus Christ uniquely significant in history, relevant in our present world and a living hope for the future of humanity.

Jesus’ story summarizes the human story and offers a conclusion that we were unable to reach ourselves. The circular events in which chaos gives way to order and order succumbs to chaos, the never ending cycle of victors and victims would finally be interrupted by a truly new event. Jesus is the embodiment of a message, the creative word that confronts the meaningless chaos of our own stories. Time would be compressed and the futility of its rivalistic activity would be revealed; simultaneously a new time of true meaning would come about in the self-giving love of this man Jesus Christ.
