Quote of the Day

John Dominic Crossan, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies, DePaul University:
"The Kingdom of God is picking the one term that will make the Romans listen. They considered themselves the Kingdom of God. Theirs was the power and the glory, 25 legions or so, too. When Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God, he is saying as clearly as is possible in the 1st Century, ‘In your face, Caesar.’"
From the interesting NBC Dateline and Jesus with Borg, Crossan, Evans and more...
