Mark 6:3-4

I think what we have here is Jesus, very early in his ministry, demonstrating a very human desire to "show off" for people in his hometown who have known him all his life.


We in Unity do not believe in a place called Hell where people being punished for their sins will burn forever. There are many reasons why that concept simply doesn't make sense.

Luke 15:7

It's amazing how Jesus can pack a great depth of meaning into a simple statement. The challenge, of course, then becomes to unpack that meaning for ourselves.

Luke 4:23

It is not Jesus who says (in the NRSV) "Doctor, cure yourself." He is quoting from an old proverb and attributing it to the Nazarenes who have just heard him speak in the synagogue.

Job 3:25

This is one of my favorite verses in all the Bible because it sets out so clearly the basic spiritual Truth that we create our own life experiences according to the choices we make. We are creative expressions of the one God.

1 John 1:9

Catholics, of course, have externalized this (and other) passages into a sacrament. Metaphysically, however, we don't affirm a need for a confessor—an intermediary between ourselves and the Divine.

Luke 2:16-19

Matthew's story of the immediate aftermath of the birth of Jesus involved wealthy, educated magi from the East; Luke's story is of humble shepherds inspired by angels on high.
