what would judaism have become if it weren't for christ ... what would christianity look like if in the middle of the desert it gave up the trinity ... couldn't the answers be the same ... one word ... islam ... one god one prophet one law one people ... what a scandal to religion jesus was ... to believe in one god was fierce ... to believe in many was urbane ... but to pick just three no more no less ... even as an afterthought a movement in the oddity of the thinker's brain there would be scandal ... to the sage on the top of the mountain in the middle of the city as close to the absolute as it was comfortable to go it was crude and a folly ... but to the sorry penitent on his knees the old woman dying in her bed all the world groaning in travail for something infinitely better the story made sense ... incarnation and resurrection the hope of humanity the intimate hope ... but the crucifixion wisdom crucified ... the infinite truth
