The Existential Jesus

Some smart aleck(s) want(s) to stump me with these questions for the BYOS (Bring Your Own Sermon) summer series.   Here they are:
  • You use the term Jesus ________???? ( Ask John what phrase he uses and fill it in.) What do you mean by that.
  • Please talk about Sartre, Camus and other existentialists (maybe Tillich, maybe not) and whether or not they have a strong kinship with Jesus and how some of that might be important to Southminster.
I think the first bullet point is about "the historical Jesus" and so I will talk about that.   The second bullet point is beyond my pay grade.  Thus, you get what you pay for.   But I will give it a go.    


Faced with these absurd questions I am in anguish.
"It was then I realized that you could either shoot or not shoot."
"There was no way out."
