johnnies are an interesting bunch of people that attend st. john’s college, like me. here’s a pic of my seminar. normally we sit around a big square table and talk about books for two hours, but this particular night we had dinner and discussion.
yesterday (in our last class) we discussed kierkegaard’s philosophical fragments. an interesting question was raised that i’d like to pose to any of you… should we be grateful not to have known the historical Jesus? you don’t need to have read kierkegaard to respond. just reflect on whether being a contemporary of Jesus would help or hinder faith. i’d LOVE to hear your thoughts!!
(i changed the setting on comments so anyone can respond… even anonymously if you prefer… yeah, i’m not actually expecting responses. but it would be cool!)
