4 thoughts on “Rhidian Babbling Brook, writer, celebrity and Christian

  1. Is this the last we’ll hear of Tim? Or will he phone it in from wherever he’s going? The pool of articulate Christians able to spout platitudes to order and guaranteed not to stray off piste can’t be that great.


  2. All together now: “Rhid’s leaving home, bye-bye”.

    The sole allusion to faith today seemed to be the observation that, according to the myths, Jesus didn’t have a home of his own. But, according to those same myths, he lived with his parents for 30 years, which would have been a long time in first-century Palestine. Even afterwards, he had a network of groupies, such as Lazarus or Jairus, whose sofas he could borrow for a night or two.

    Paul said that Jesus lives in people’s hearts. That might reflect the belief, borne out by other bits of Paul’s Epistles, that for him Jesus was a purely spiritual being, with no need of a physical home at all.

    Rhid didn’t say where he was off to. I wonder if he’ll phone in his TftDs from Timbuktu or wherever he’s going. Or whether this really was his last hurrah.


  3. As to whether Jesus had his own home, there is one definite reference:
    Mark 2:15
    “And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.”

    and also some that might be relevant depending on the uncertain context, e.g.
    Mark 7:17
    “And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.”
    As usual, the Bible is self-contradictary.
