in medias res, 2 – “into the middle of things”

October 3, 2007

“After Jesus had called His disciples, He did an unusual thing. He took them with Him into the world. Not the nice world of spiritual retreats and controlled learning environments, but the world of prostitutes, hypocrites, and the demon-possessed. The world of disease, death, and mourning. The world of the greedy and corrupt. A world of late nights, raging storms, and responsibilities. ”

–Ian John, “Don’t Beam Us Up, Scotty,” Discipleship Journal
