“What Is It with That Guy?”: “Black Jesus” and Power of God-talk at the Gate

A "Jesus" who dons an ethnicity disenfranchised from political and social power; who walks the streets of the ghetto; associates with winos, gangsters, potheads, and a variety of a other n'ere-do-wells; recruits a bunch of foul-mouthed, shifty characters to be his disciples; is suspected of being "crazy;" and offends the religious establishment sounds EXACTLY like the Jesus I read about in scripture.
