Jesus doesn’t deny power; he redefines it in the context of the Kingdom of God. As Tom demonstrates with the Cure of the Man Born Blind the religious authorities are unable to accept the change because they are trapped in their position of power: to perceive how the created order is reshaped by the Cross and perceive what God is achieving in the power of the Risen Victim Resurrection, people need humility and imagination to come out of the structures and powers of our world. Tom’s explanation of the symbolism of the Lamb and the Dragon in Revelations shows how the Risen Jesus, not the might of the Roman Empire, holds the real power.
