Shane, Ray, and Rob: subverting empire, surveying 666

It is debated whether
  • Ray Van Der Laan (see this, for one) and

go too far (the first two draw heavily on Thomas Schmidt) in reading subversive satire of emperor/empire into the NT.

some thing seems clear:

saying "Jesus is Lord" in the old days meant two things..
the first is obvious.
The second is killer: "Ceasar is not."


"666"'s fundamemtal meaning is "Nero Ceaser"

Shane, Ray and Rob..

Maybe those three could sing as a trio...the three Empire-Subverting Guys could even record with the three Catholic girls from my previous post... (:
