Was it Jesus That Was Crucified?

 

The messenger.

[Missing from between 04.01.11. ”Hope” and  05.01.11. ”The Pendulum Swings”]

Whilst I was doing something mundane the cogs of my mind were slowly turning on something unrelated to what followed, when I suddenly neopted this:

The “Word” is the “Logos”, is the Christ, is Jesus. . . . . . . . . . Jesus was crucified . . . . . . . the “Word”, the “Logos” was crucified . . . . .

Next was probably a mental deduction from the preceding neoption – but perhaps even the continuation of the neoption – which proceeded thus:
It was not Jesus that was crucified, it was the Word, the message; crucified by the people. Jesus was the central character in a myth symbolising the message because a character is more easily understood than something abstract like the “Word” or “Logos”. Thus, it was the message that was abused, denied, forgotten, (crucified) and, as Jesus resurrected himself, the message would.
Hence, salvation.

For the first time ever I was very much affected by the enormous negative effect this would have in the world but I have not hesitated in committing it to words for the consideration of all people.
As an essential truth there is, of course, no harm in this because the essential truth remains unchanged. The repercussions will stem from the loss of an emotional crutch – the proverbial pulling out of the carpet from under someone’s feet – and an emotional reaction to this loss.

For my part, I am very much aware of the far greater probity this will instill into Christian theology in particular and spirituality in general.
