- It's encouraging that God will quickly grant justice, but this is in a context where people were oppressed, where Christians were persecuted and Jewish people kept under the weight of Roman rule. Is the justice the justice of new life, of resurrection, of hope? Or is it the miracles and healings that accompanied the Christians and Jesus?

- I don't know if it's things I've been reading recently reminding me of my upbringing, but all this about humility reminds me of the worrying 'you're kind of nothing' self-abasement trend of modern evangelicism.

- His kindness to Peter is lovely, though.

- Idk if this is disrespectful because it's about the cross, but I know that feel w/r/t not understanding.

- And his acceptance of the blind man and children when people viewed them as lesser and wanted thme pushed away - humility in this context could be more about accepting those society views as least/not viewing yourself as above them?
