Good Story 059: Jesus of Nazareth

The great question that will be with us throughout this entire book: What did Jesus actually bring, if not world peace, universal prosperity, and a better world? What has he brought?

The answer is very simple: God.... He has brought God, and now we know his face, now we can call upon him. Now we know the path that we human beings have to take in this world. Jesus has brought God and with God the truth about our origin and destiny: faith, hope and love. It is only because of our hardness of heart that we think this is too little. Yes indeed, God's power works quietly in this world, but it is the true and the lasting power. Again and again, God's cause seems to be in its death throes. Yet over and over again it proves to be the thing that truly endures and saves.

-- Pope Benedict XVI, Jesus of Nazareth

In this episode, Julie and Scott take a quick swim to the deep end of the pool (where all the cool kids hang out) to talk theology. The subject is Jesus of Nazareth: From the Baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration, written by Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI).
