Boy, this got me thinking…

Jesus was a Jew. And Jesus was a poor Jew. If we dare take the position that in Jesus there was at work some radical destiny, it would be safe to say that in Jesus’ poverty he was more truly Son of man than he would have been if the incident of family or birth had made him a rich son of Israel. (Taken from Howard Thurman, Jesus and the Disinherited, pages 5-7.)
