A Thinker's Guide To…
The Apocalypse: The Hero
“Never in my life have I feared death as much as I feared the resurrection.”
–The Last Temptation of Christ, Nikos Kazantzakis
Jesus has always been a conundrum to me. Growing up, I was always told he was our Hero. Truthfully, I've never been able to quite shake the feeling of him being my enemy. The relationship I was taught to have with him is strange. This hero that was suppose to save me from everything, somehow became tied to the hell that is in my soul.
I think of Jesus as both my opposite and the same. To me, he is not just the benchmark, but the framework, of who I ought to be and who I don't want to be. Today I'm telling you all about the hero I was taught to worship long before I was even born. It all begins with the promise of being born.
The question remains…what does it really mean to be a hero? What do we actually need rescuing from?
