    Yes, you’ve identified the heart of the problem! How do we distinguish between the way of Jesus and the inevitability of our too human interpretations (positionality, seeing through a glass darkly, and all that excruciating stuff). I would like to hope you are right, that getting close to the heart of Jesus is possible, even if we are all prone to “hermeneutical gymnastics” now and then. And yes, your point about fruit is really helpful, because it puts us right back into the position of (not thinking good, grand thoughts) making choices about the good we might do in the world today.
