I received an email from a good friend this evening which contained the following paragraph. I've always been a big fan of Sir John.
After translating Mark's Gospel in Greek Exegesis this past fall, I came to understand the saying, "Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God; he got the Church instead." Having had my own struggles with the Church this past couple of years, I'm keeping it simple. "God was Man in Palestine, and lives to-day in Bread and Wine" ("Christmas," by John Betjemann).
