How true a reformer #Jesus was in His life. He shared the fate of all reformers — “He was despised and rejected of men‚” etc. Like ‚ like Savonarola‚ Latimer‚ and John Huss; like many another in Church and State‚ He was killed by the people. Your true Reformer is no demagogue; he does not flatter the people: he tells them the truth.
The Rev. Canon L. Ivens was a Chicago based minister with Church of Christ‚ who discerned Jesus’ role as a Reformer in a profound way already back in 1905.
