The Voice of the Galilean

The Story of a Life, a Journey, a Discovery, a Gift, and a Fate

Product Description
Rex Weyler's Voice of the Galilean stands as one of the most clear, compelling, and concise tellings of the life and teachings of Jesus ever written. Excerpted and updated from his seminal book The Jesus Sayings: The Quest for His Authentic Message - a brilliant synthesis of the work of international Bible scholars and some 200 ancient sources, including the gospels of Thomas and Mary -Voice of the Galilean distills the teachings of Jesus with crystal clarity, sensitivity, insight, and passion. Equally important, Weyler challenges readers to bear "witness" to Jesus' message today, in their own lives.

"History is not on autopilot, but emerges as the summation of choices and actions performed by the living. 'What will be will be' is a proverb for laziness. 'What will be' is the result of the choices we make and the actions we take. Jesus lived and taught this lesson. How we act to our neighbour, our enemy, to the unfortunate, to the earth itself, measures our humanity. Jesus encouraged his audience to wake up. Witness yourself. Witness what is before your eyes. Be as a child, alive with wonder and natural generosity... Jesus had faith in humanity, and this knowledge bolsters my faith in humanity. It may take a miracle, or a complete disaster, but perhaps humankind can rediscover simple living, common decency, everyday compassion and reverence for the earth. We don't need mythic heroes, who will witness the truth and speak up for those deprived of a voice. Perhaps the living presence of Jesus... will endure."
