I read an excerpt from Jesus in Love: At the Cross in a new video. I chose a short, powerful section based on Christ’s model prayer, often called the “Lord’s Prayer” or the “Our Father.”
In the novel, the prayer becomes a dialogue between Jesus and his beloved disciple John after Jesus’ resurrection, when the risen Christ responds to John’s prayers. The dramatic events of Christ’s Passion happen in the context of a gay love story between Jesus and his disciple John.
Jesus in Love: At the Cross covers Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, and Jesus’ arrest, trial, crucifixion, and resurrection, ending on Pentecost. Jesus, the narrator, speaks in a contemporary voice as he reveals the erotic, mystical experiences that may have led to the first Easter.
I blog at the Jesus in Love Blog and edit the Jesus in Love Newsletter on queer spirituality and the arts. My website, JesusInLove.org, features the growing number of books and art based on the queer Christ.
