The cross demythologizes the old mythological machinery which was generated by an event structurally identical to the crucifixion - and also shows us the living God...but in a trinitarian way

The excerpt begins the seventh cassette tape from the series on Luke's Gospel. Gil takes time at the start of this session to reflect on the 'epistemological revolution' brought about by the Gospel.

The parable of the Good Samaritan continued...what was left out of the Good Samaritan story. Luke places the story of the sisters Martha and Mary as a diptych to the Good Samaritan's depiction of the second part of the "Great Commandment" you shall love your neighbor as your self. In the Martha and Mary story the first part is brought to the fore, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength.

The parable of the Good Samaritan continued...
a man who had fallen among thievese.e. cummings
lay by the roadside on his back
dressed in fifteenthrate ideas
wearing a round jeer for a hat
fate per a somewhat more than less
had in return for consciousness
endowed him with a changeless grin
whereon a dozen staunch and leal
citizens did graze at pause
then fired by hypercivic zeal
sought newer pastures or because
swaddled with a frozen brook
of pinkest vomit out of eyes
which noticed nobody he looked
as if he did not care to rise
one hand did nothing on the vest
its wideflung friend clenched weakly dirt
while the mute trouserfly confessed
a button solemnly inert.
Brushing from whom the stiffened puke
i put him all into my arms
and staggered banged with terror through
a million billion trillion stars

The parable of the Good Samaritan continued...the enlightenment project, when rejecting its Christian moral basis, emulates the priest and Levite by moving away from the centrality of the victim.
