My favourite thing about Justin Tse’s epic tweet threads is seeing how the Gospels diffract as they encounter, in real time, a thinking, feeling human being. As Justin himself puts it:
A friend mentioned recently that he thought this live-tweeting of the Gospels was [an] ‘intriguing and, I think, not untrue, vector for meditating,’ and I feel he may be right. But it’s not meditative; it’s disciplined free association.
That’s why I appreciate this exercise. I tend to avoid reading the Scriptures when I can’t give them the scholarly or meditative attention they deserve. These tweets remind me to relax — to just read. They’re a great way to ease into Holy Week.
