Readings for February 19th

Eat me! You can’t blame people for wondering if Jesus was insane. Eat my flesh and drink my blood fits in with the macabre vampire culture of the day but it still causes revulsion to anyone pondering the idea. It is certainly not a new one. People have been trying to steal strength, absorb mana, or dominate enemies by canabilism for the history of the world. Jesus won’t back down, he’s even willing to push this to the division of his closest followers, this is very important to Jesus.

He says this near the beginning of His ministry and because of His insistance we must look for the answer, at the end of His earthly ministry when ordinary things become extraordinary. For bread Jesus says, ‘take eat this is my body’ and for wine, ‘take drink this is my blood.’
