Pigeon-holing.

Saturday 20 February

Who was Jesus?

A concept which is hard to define. 

One of Huddersfield Parish Church books for Lent is “Jesus the Evangelist” by Robin Gamble, who is our speaker this Wednesday (24th February).

Although the book looks to Jesus as a model for the way we live and transmit the Gospel, an opening statement is that it is hard and denying of Jesus to define him. Indeed to pigeon-hole him is to make him smaller, less than he is.

Even to try and describe him is to lessen his humanity, never-mind his divinity.
