We’re tossing all the clever allegories we’ve heard before (the shepherd is Jesus and the lost sheep was me before I was saved!), or at least calling them into question, in exchange for so much more…confusion? mystery? wilderness. We’re going with a couple of rules: 1. Allegory is not always so helpful. 2. If we think we understand, we probably do not understand. And we are grateful (and reliant) on Amy-Jill Levine’s Short Stories by Jesus.
