Jesus

There’s this brave, witty, sometimes oddly petulant, man striding around in an occupied territory knowing and then not wanting to know that he’s bound to die and to die painfully. And in the middle of it all, to say things that have never been said, and are still not said, about love. As a model of what human behaviour can be like, it still stands supreme.
