  1. E ingenioasa metafora celor patru difuzoare pe care le dam fie prea tare, fie prea incet. Cred ca Wright incearca sa recupereze o dimensiune negijata (sau pierduta?) a evangeliei – cea politica. Ceea ce nu e usor pentru cei obisnuiti cu compartimentalizarea si spiritualizarea excesiva a trairii crestine.

    “If God is becoming King, in and through Jesus, it means that the kingdoms of this world are called to account” [min 47:45]

    De asemenea, Crucea nu este un eveniment izolat, ci e strans legat de mesajul despre Imparatie.

    “Israel’s vocation was to instantiate God as King through the embodiment of the suffering love by which the world was made in the first place” [1:10:25]

    “Jesus died for our sins, all right, in order to embody, exemplify and launch God’s different way of doing power into the world” [1:11:35]

    Sunt curios cat de mult difera pozitia lui Scot McKnight de cea a lui Wright.

  2. Once Wright has started talking I couldn’t stop listening until the end of the speech. Thanks, truly refreshing.

    Thy kingdom came as a different way of doing power, through Your cross-bearing people. My summary; felt it right before but said with the right words here.

  3. Oh dear, you made me blush 🙂
    I have only put together two ideas from the speech which meant something for me.
    Anyway, I am just talking the talk; as for the walking…that’s a different story
    Thanks
