Part 4 of Jesus in the Margins

John Frye continues his Jesus in the Margins series here.

When Jesus broke bread, he broke Israel.
With his meal-time habits, Jesus was speaking a new language and introducing a new world.
What in our culture is this powerful? Consumerism ... Meh, maybe. Lord give me the vision and insight into my culture that you had. Help me see where the fault lines of the kingdom lie.

Every meal Jesus ate in his ministry was a transformative expression, a here and now enactment of the presence of the kingdom of God.
I'm hungry.
