In Mark’s gospel, we encounter a very human Jesus. A Jesus who has been formed by human communities with their own blind-spots, prejudices, and hatreds. And yet there is something of grace we can find in this humanness. For even as we all move in the world surrounded by prejudices, confronting our own prejudices, it is a comfort to know that God himself has come into even that sharp, dark place.
