  1. Hrm…. someone’s been reading “The Drama of Scripture” and “The Gospel in a Pluralist Society”. 😉

    Honestly, this translation of “image” is one that has really shaped my life lately… rather than needing to go out and make some sort of verbal argument for God’s kingdom, I see it as being the Ebenezer of God’s Kingdom… “Here is God’s Kingdom. Where I and my community stand, this is where you can find the nature and character of God. We represent God here on earth.”… again, not in words so much as in standing out in such an immensely dynamic way that folks can have no doubt that God’s reign is present.

    • Just “Drama of Scripture” a few months ago. Never read Gospel in a Pluralist Society. I remember first noticing it in my Hebrew textbook where the dictionary translated it as “statue” and I kept rechecking the word wondering why it wasn’t the translation I was used to for that verse. Then around the same time a friend pointed out the same thing to me and my mind was blown that I had never heard that before.
