Le Christ selon Jésus (Hors collection) (French Edition) by Éric DENIMAL

By Éric DENIMAL

Un retour aux resources de l'Évangile : Jésus nous dit lui-même qui il était, d'après le récit de Marc, le plus ancien des évangiles.
Une révolution à l'époque qui a gardé toute sa modernité.

Chez les Hébreux, des siècles d'espérance avaient forgé un portrait idéal du messie attendu, conçu par des hommes impatients et imparfaits. Ils avaient décidé du sauveur qu'ils voulaient tandis que Dieu préparait celui dont ils avaient besoin. N'étant pas conforme aux attentes immédiates, Jésus devint une pierre d'achoppement qui lui valut l'opprobre et l'incompréhension, jusqu'à l. a. crucifixion.
Pour comprendre l. a. révolution que représenta l. a. venue de ce sauveur différent de ce que le peuple juif attendait, Éric Denimal suggest une lecture attentive de l'Évangile de Marc, le most efficient et le plus concis des quatre Évangiles, qui montre l. a. bad méprise contre laquelle Jésus lutta pour convaincre ses proches.
L'auteur respecte l. a. chronologie proposée par Marc, qui, bien plus que le uncomplicated souci d'un récit fidèle, est également message dans le message, et pédagogie de l'enseignement du Christ. Marc n'est pas simplement un journaliste qui relate les choses, il est un éditorialiste qui veut construire et partager une opinion. Son objectif est certainement de présenter avant tout le Christ selon Jésus.
C'est ainsi qu'il montre et démontre deux résistances autour de los angeles Bonne Nouvelle annoncée : les disciples et les prêtres. Les premiers se laissent progressivement modeler, les seconds entrent très vite dans un conflit qui conduira à los angeles mise à mort.
Mais même cette mise à mort a été programmée par le Fils de Dieu : Jésus l'avait annoncée, expliquée motor vehicle tel devait être le Christ inattendu, déjouant le messie attendu !
