We all bring our own hermeneutic to the text. Love would be a good one.
(EDIT: I want to clarify something about this cartoon. I want to be very careful about conveying any kind of anti-semitism that is an issue in Christianity. Perhaps I would have been wiser to portray Jesus talking to people in modern day clothing rather than to people in the clothing of his day. I do not want to communicate that Jesus is talking to Jews, but to people in general, challenging us on our hermeneutic. Thank you.)
(EDIT #2: I’ve replaced the cartoon with a better one of what I was trying to communicate. For an apology, please go to THIS POST.)
