The Jesus Brothers

Schoepfung

In Markus 4,31 steht,dass das Senfkorn der kleinste Samen auf Erden ist. Es gibt aber noch kleinere, z.b. den der Orchidee. Kennt Jesus sich in der Natur nicht aus?

Jesus ging es wohl weniger darum, ein naturwissenschaftliches Statement für die gesamte Welt abzugeben, sondern Er versuchte, Bilder zu verwenden, die dem Kenntnisstand der damaligen Menschen entsprachen. Für die mag das das kleinste Samenkorn gewesen sein. Außerdem grenzte Er die Samenkörner ja auch ein: Es ging um die Samenkörner, die man in die Erde sät (also etwa um später Früchte zu ernten).

Und genau hier sind wir am Punkt.

Senf wuchs in ganz Palästina (wohl auch heute noch). In der westlichen Welt wird er teilweise als Unkraut gesehen. Er kann bis zu 2,4 Meter hoch werden - und das in einer Jahreszeit! Seine Samen sind aber ungewöhnlich klein (siehe auch Matt. 13,31-32; 17,20; Markus 4,30-32;Lukas 17,6)

Jesus vergleicht dies mit dem Reich Gottes, das zwar erst einmal als kleine Saat gesät wird, dann aber aufgeht und alle anderen Pflanzen übersteigt, sodass die Vögel des Himmels darin nisten können, wie es in Vers 32 heisst.

Wer etwas Englisch kann, dem empfehle ich zum Nachschlagen das "Catholic Bible Dictionary" von Scott Hahn, erschienen bei Doubleday Religion.

Obama Highlights Emerging Impacts of Climate Change, Calls for Energy Transformation and for Community Climate Preparedness

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 00:00:49 +0000

In his State of the Union address last night (12 February 2013), President Obama said that "for the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change."  He pledged to "come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy."  He said that "if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will." Lou Leonard, WWF’s head of climate change, responded: "It was encouraging to see President Obama connect the dots between extreme weather and dirty energy, and to be clear that he won't wait for Congress to act.  Cities and towns on the front lines of extreme weather can't afford more excuses from Washington."

In his Second Inaugural Address, President Obama says "We will respond to the threat of climate change"

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 17:21:05 +0000

In his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama said today (21 January 2013) at the Capitol in Washington, DC: "We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations."  Lou Leonard, head of WWF’s climate change program, is heartened by the President's statement, saying that "it is an important first step for using the power of the Presidency to spur a practical national conversation on climate change. The importance of the President regularly raising his voice on this issue cannot be overstated. But a sustained national conversation isn’t enough. The President should lay out the steps he can and will take to clean up our energy system, help communities prepare for climate disruption and encourage the rest of the world to ramp up action."
