In the beginning is the Question, because for any other beginning, why is always possible and inevitable.
For this series of four image-based classes, that question is not the theological, but the evolutionary challenge of Jesus.
The series brackets theism versus atheism or monotheism versus polytheism to insist that the challenge of Jesus, the Mediterranean Jewish peasant, is to the evolutionary future of humanity with the world as Titanic and we its iceberg.
