Mary

November 26, 2006

I, like my Protestant brethren, do not give Mary enough credit.

    Cool article. There’s a great book (I hope it’s still in print) called “Two From Galilee” by Marjorie Holmes, which fleshes out some of the emotions and circumstances Mary and Joseph may have faced in their lives before Jesus was born. It’s a very good read and I think I helps make them more real and more human. More than simply characters in a story.

    Also, I think it’s an amazing thought that Mary was the Theotokos—the God Holder. She was the first person to carry Jesus inside her. And then he sent the Holy Spirit so that we could all be theotokos—like Mary. So yeah, she should be esteemed as a role model and a hero.

    Cool thought Jeana about the Theotokos.

    Scot McKnight, author of The Real Mary, will be on KPDQ for those local Portlanders who want to hear from him. Radio gigs
