Which Jesus Are You Following?

Image by Minds-Eye

“The longer you look at Jesus, the more you will want to serve him in his world.  That is, of course, if it’s the real Jesus you’re looking at.  Plenty of people in the church and outside it have made up a ‘Jesus’ for themselves, and have found that this invented character makes few real demands on them.  He makes them feel happy from time to time but doesn’t challenge them, doesn’t suggest they get up and do something about the plight of the world.  Which is, of course, what the real Jesus had an uncomfortable habit of doing.”

- N.T. Wright, from the preface of Following Jesus (Eerdmans, 1994)
