Thursday Thoughts - December 22

The New Testament gospels are excellent examples of plot making. These stories are not chronological accounts of daily routines and events, but creative imitations of action that are imaginatively reconstructed to stake a claim that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and therefore the world. Imagination is not only a feature of their composition, but also a necessity for their interpretation, appropriation, and living out into the world.
