Who are we when we read the scriptures?

September 19, 2016

Great point by Rev. Wil Gafney!

“Who are we when we read the scriptures? Whose eyes do we read through? When we hear Jeremiah lamenting for his people where do we place ourselves in the story? Christians like to read as though we were the Israelite to whom these texts were written because they are spiritual ancestors. But the truth is Christianity is much more like the Assyrian Empire than the Judean monarchy that survived it.”

Read more in the post, “Matrix of Privilege,” on Rev. Gafney’s website.
