James truly has an extraordinary talent for pertinent titles, such as “induction into a people”. Or, Rich, to put it into his own words…..”atonement and the birth of a new people are different sides of the same coin. By disrupting our old way of forming unity over against someone, Jesus effected a change at the anthropological level, launching a project called church. What opens up when we can enter into the perspective of the victim is the possibility of being forgiven….when we let go of the victimising way of creating and maintaining togetherness, we begin to relate to other people without the need to gang up in order to survive.”
