S1 Episode 12: Humanity of Jesus Redux EPISODE 12

Jeanne and Jennifer revisit Anne Sexton's poem "Jesus Walking," diving deeper into the poem's rhythms, the process of experiencing poetry, and how literary strategies also get used to illuminate the Jesus of the Gospels. Close reading reveals that the Jesus of each Gospel is highly distinct from the Jesus of the other Gospels, with each Gospel emphasizing different ideas about Jesus and even describing the same event using different details. Jennifer suggests that in recognizing the differences between the Gospels, we respect each Gospel more. We don't have to "harmonize" them to honor them.
