From Symmetry of Soul
Jump to: navigation, search
  • Jesus in the wake of early religion: Preaching About Galilee: Jesus Public Ministry
    • i.e. The Fourth Epochal Presentation of The Father
    • Preaching tour papers
    • Block of public ministry in Galilee
      • Paper 146: "The first preaching tour began..." is a fine beginning, not jumping into the middle.
      • Paper 155 ends: "and when Jesus had finished, let us be on our way" is a fine ending
      • We studied [146:2] back in Prayer in 2014, but it's worth studying again.
    • Theme: An encapsulation of the public ministry (to contrast with our most recent arc on Jesus the Tutor)
    • Theme: Juxtaposing the 4th and 5th ER's presentations of the Father
    • Theme: Levels of meaning, the definitive ones from Jesus
    • Why does the Heathen rage
    • Rule for living
    • We like this better than the later life block and its focus on Christianity.


  • Arc title:
    • Jesus in Galilee
    • Jesus the teacher
    • Jesus the preacher
    • Jesus the minister


  • Series 1: Early public work
    • as opposed to ministry. focus on the simpler "work"
    • The formal preaching tour and its appendix of touching-base with Jerusalem (a common pattern)
    • <no predicate>
    • Papers 146: tour
    • Paper 147: appendix
  • Series 2: Advancing ministry
    • Papers 148 (predicate)
    • Paper 149 (tour)
    • <no appendix>
  • Series 3: Building to the climax (of the ministry)
    • Third tour and things tied to it
    • Papers 150 through 152
    • Modifying methods a bit... introduction of parables in Paper 151.
    • Building up to the crisis.....
    • It's the high-water mark of the ministry. Then everything goes downhill and they have to run away
  • (...which leads to) Series 4: Crisis and Consequences
    • aka The crisis
    • Paper 153 through 155
    • That is, once the ministry is fully out there and seen in its full effectiveness, his enemies make their move. And it all explodes.


  • Phases apparent in the series above
    • 1: Levels of meaning
    • 2: from fear to love
    • 3: feeding the 5000
    • 4: why does the heathen rage? 8-fold path to progress


  • Other patterns
    • Begin things in January (and often run through April)
      • Paper 141: Jan AD 27 (public ministry)
      • Paper 146: Jan AD 28 (first preaching tour)
    • Is this because of the climate? "Travel season?" Perhaps
    • Was he beginning in the Roman calendar's January for a reason? Jesus tipping his has hat to the Romans advance?
      • The Roman civil authority was trying to put forth this idea.
      • The more "natural" tendency was to start a new year in spring (March 25th or so)
    • And notices how times compresses through part IV. Just like the Geology papers.
  • Definition clarity?
    • Preaching
    • Ministry
    • Public work
    • Teaching
