Donny Friederichsen on Scripture

“Albert Schweitzer, at the end of his critique of the ‘Quest for the Historical Jesus’ in the late 19th-early 20th c., came to the conclusion that the historical Jesus always bore an uncanny resemblance to the researcher.

Point being, once you rip Jesus from the written word of Scripture, you get a Jesus that always affirms your preconceptions and never challenges your idols.”

I try to plan out a little bit of what I post on here but every now and then someone writes, speaks, or tweets something that just seems to hit a little different at the time. Personally and humbly, I want to know the real Jesus and not the one that I can conjure in my own mind. Thankfully I live in a time where I’m able to do the work and have access to so many resources to support that.

Illustrator and Sketchnoter. I prefer pizza over tacos. I like to draw things without fur much more than things with fur. When presented with two choices I pick the one that's less complicated.
