page 123

Amy Stewart tagged me to play page 123, with these [semi-bizarre] rules:
  • Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)

  • Find Page 123.

  • Find the first 5 sentences.

  • Post the next 3 sentences.

  • Tag 5 people.
At first I'd almost decided to semi-cheat because I thought I had at least a half dozen short stacks of books due to everything not fitting into the [milk crate and related] book cases, but as it turned out I had only one, since the others were things like notebooks, folders and choir octavos. Therefore, here's my play straight out of Keeping Holy Time, Year B:

This appears to be the model with which the first disciples were working (see Mark 10:37 and Acts 1:6). Jesus' messianic program—to die shamed and rejected, then rise again—was not a model conceived for the messiah by any other Jewish group. The early church's creative interaction with the Old Testament prophets and psalms created this new paradigm after the reality had been observed and experienced.
I'm tagging Praying on the Prairie; Freshly Ground Lutheran, aka Hot Cup; Frog Blog – 1-4 Grace; Purpletologically Speaking and Karla. If you've already played, that's cool (I've been reading far too few blogs lately...), you can link in the comments. Also, other interested blogger reading this, consider yourself tagged—you can play in the comments or link to your own blog.
