Foolishness: Jesus the Cover-Up

In the Epistle Reading for this coming Sunday, 1 Corinthians 1:10-18, the Apostle Paul talks about the “foolishness” of the message about the cross. As I begin to prepare myself for a serious engagement of the scripture readings, I am reminded of the foolishness with which various interpreters of the life and death of Jesus have developed the various theories of atonement. This little video, sarcastically holds up a mirror to those theories. Laughter seems like a good place to begin a conversation about this foolishness. Surely, any serious engagement of the Jesus experience must set aside the follies of our attempts to turn Jesus into something he was not.
