I've been reading Isaiah 53 during Holy Week (among other texts) and I concluded today that the sentiment expressed Isaiah 53.12 might be the most subversive, scandalous, and destabilizing idea in all of Scripture:
...he was numbered with the transgressors...I mean, can any church or Christian ever be smug, safe, contented, moralistic or self-satisfied in light of Isaiah 53.12? Just when the dust settles Isaiah 53.12 comes along, taps you on the shoulder and says, "By the way, God is over there. Yes, with those people."
Any other nominations for most subversive text in all of the Bible?
