The Moment of Crisis, Part 3: Jesus, 1958 February 23


In this third installment of The Moment of Crisis, Thurman brings the life of Jesus into the conversation. The crisis is still being discussed as the moment in time when one senses he is being pulled in two different directions. One direction is interpreted as that which would move him to new territories physically and mentally. The other direction seeks to conserve and hold the line against all change. When Paul was met with a moment of crisis, his resolution came through breaking with the tradition of his fathers. When Jesus was met with a crisis, he refused to break with the tradition of his fathers. This decision to remain a Jew and stay the course ultimately ended at the cross. It is often in our moments of crisis where we have the power to make decisions that bring forth confirmation and hold our lives in balance.
