Thomas Bergen (Residence Coordinator at the Menno Simons Centre and alumnus of Regent College), continued his series on Mark: The Identity of  Jesus with a comparison of Herod’s death-dealing banquet and Jesus’ life-giving banquet and a challenge for Jesus’ disciples to reflect Jesus’ hospitality. While Herold’s banquet took the life of John the Baptist, Jesus saved lives by creating abundance from 5 loaves and 2 fish. When those at Herold’s banquet were grabbing for power, Jesus shared power with others. When Herold saved face by hosting a banquet for show, Jesus took risks by opening himself up so that others may be saved. [JL]
