    Thanks. I understand that we all see the world, as well as scripture, differently depending on so many things; depending on our lenses so to speak, but at the end of the day don´t we have to come to some sort of conclusion about who Jesus Christ really is? Is he the John Wayne Jesus? Is he Thurman´s Jesus? Is he both? Does Jesus transcend all our attempts to try to box him in? I can only speak for myself here. The circles that I come from would have definitively said that the Jesus Kobes Du Mez writes and reports about is the “right” Jesus. All other pictures of Jesus are simply not grounded in scripture and are, for lack of a better word, liberal. I no longer believe this, but I still do find it overwhelmingly interesting that two camps can read the same Bible and come to such contrasting conclusions about our Lord.
