The Perennial Novelty of Jesus (13015)

SKU: 13015
  • The perennial novelty of Jesus can be best gauged from the growing efforts to make him a nonentity. In recent decades secularists as well as Jews have been in the forefront of such efforts, a fact of which Catholics should be more aware than they are. The novelty of Jesus was so great that Old Testament prophecies about him fell far short of what his novelty really is. This in spite of the fact that the Old Testament was very novel in relation to all other religions. Then the startlingly novel aspects of Jesus public mission of little more than two years are presented. That mission aimed at gradually disclosing Jesus' real status, his equality with the Father, the most novel message conceivable. That message had for its backdrop Jesus' extraordinary life and deeds. Their combined novelty perpetuates itself in the lives of saints of whom ever fresh instances arise within the Church.
