In the western imagination YHWH and his messiah have most often been equated with Zeus, lord of the sky, and Apollo, his light giving son ... or is it sun?
And yet, the scriptures again and again speak YHWH as Lord of earth, sky and sea and everything in them. Would it not be just as apt to imagine Jesus in terms of Dionysus, whom Greeks thanked for wine, or Demeter, whom Greeks thanked for bread? After all, the ancient Isaelites saw YHWH as Lord of the harvest and Jesus spoke of God’s harvest often enough!
You were hungry and I was sorry. You were thirsty and I blamed the world. You were a stranger and I pointed you out. You were naked and I turned you in. You were sick and I said a prayer. You were in prison and I wrote a poem.
