At first reading, it seems we have met a different Jesus! The preacher of grace and welcome has become a prophet of condemnation, declaring such things as: “Whoever is not with me is against me,” and, “This generation is an evil generation…”
How do we explain this change in tone? Why the threats of judgment? And what’s so wrong with the crowds asking for a “sign” to verify Jesus’s authority?
In this episode we examine Jesus’s battle with evil and our role in a cosmic conflict. (And Kirk gets a visit from his new Jesus on the Shelf.)
The text for this episode is Luke 11:14-36 (NRSV)
