Been reading some of The Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard recently. One thought from that:
1 John 1:5 says "This is the message we heard from Jesus ..."
What would be the way you would finish that sentence (without looking it up!)? Dallas suggests that how we would finish the sentence would be very telling about who we understand Jesus to be ... and the message as we understand it - I do tend to agree.
So how would you finish the sentence?
