The ABC Interview
A quick question: you note, in your translation to the New Testament, that it has, in many places, a profound aversion to not just all material possessions (Lk. 14:33) but even to the very order of reality (1 Jn. 2:15, etc.). This troubles me, as I'm not inclined to ignore the texts, but I'm not sure how one functions at all if one obeys them. You are very frank about what Jesus says, but you are not a renunciate, and you still have some material possessions—how do you interpret these verses in light of, well, life in the cosmos?
An absolute gem of an interview!
A pure delight to hear you being interviewed (intelligently) by a fellow Australian who was well prepared and willing to have some fun - also enjoyed listening to Prof Lee in the remaining part of the podcast. May you return many more times to Oz and get to explore other states and places.
This was a great conversation. I'm still eagerly anticipating your work on vedantic christology. Love and appreciate you.
thanks for the notice will have to check it out
First typo I’ve ever noticed associated with you in print (5th paragraph of the linked article). I’m sure it was an error of the scribes as I don’t remember it in the sun stack version. Thought I’d point it out just in case they can correct such things. The insight of Narcissus is one of my all time favorite cultural commentaries you’ve given to date.
Always glad to hear when your notoriety increases. It should be at much faster rate and higher volume than it has been. It's only a matter of time.
