Jim West, in a post I cannot find, says that the two presuppositions for understanding the gospels aright are:
- Jesus was God in the Flesh
- Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi.
I’ve been reflecting upon these. Whatever you think of Jim West (I think he’s from outer space, some think he is as timeless as the moon and stars, and others think he’s fairly eccentric), I think he’s got this right. More in the future.
