The Failures of Jesus

Filed under: failure — markandmore @ 21:03

In mediaeval style we can talk of the four failures of Jesus:

  • as the prophecized messiah he was to expel the kittim, the Roman occupiers
  • as Mark makes clear, he failed to explain himself to the disciples
  • he failed, as he had promised, to return in the lifetime of those listening
  • the church established in his name taught a doctrine contrary to his teachings
