Indeed quoting an OT verse (Numbers 18:6), and “the Levites”, in such an literal manner, certainly does betray a kind of overt idea for the NT “presbyter”, and one can sense here at least a kind of reality of Judaization! But hey, again, I am “Reformed” and something Protestant. Once again, a theological difference!
Maybe I should stop using the moniker “Father”? I know my conservative Roman friends would say yeah! But then again, there is 1 Cor. 4: 15. (And this is certainly pastoral!) I am speaking somewhat satirical, and even to myself! (We must not take “ourselves” too seriously!)
You can always fall back on Dr
Now that really would be serious! But since I am still an Anglican, and was even a one-time Anglo-Catholic, I guess I will stick with Fr. Thanks to be friendly with an old man!
Judaization? Might it be the influence of his wife, who is of the Jewish faith?
A Roman Catholic Monsignor married with a Jewish wife… times are changing indeed!
+ PAX et BONUM
Wow, Don! I used the word “theologically”, not literally and of one’s marriage! I lived in Israel, and thanks be to God, some of the people, both younger and older, have mixed marriages.. especially Roman Catholic and Jewish! And btw, there are several Roman Catholic Cardinals that are “Jewish”! There is nothing quite so beautiful as a Jewish and Roman Catholic marriage! Since of course our Savior was a Jew!
Msgr Burnham’s wife is a Catholic like his good self. She may be of a Jewish background but has been a practising Christian for a long time. I have to say, I find this oft-repeated remark about her Judaism a bit strange.
Indeed, quite odd in this time, certainly! Btw, I like the term myself, as I have heard from many Jewish Christians, that they are fulfiled (completed) Jews!
