Quote of the Day

[speaking of Jesus calling and creating a community of disciples] New teachings are no threat, as long as the teacher stands alone; a movement, extending his personality in both time and space, presenting an alternative to the structures that were there before, challenges the system as no mere words ever could.

– John Howard Yoder, Politics of Jesus (33)
