A way of living in mystery

“The salvation brought by Jesus is not a salvation of knowledge. The salvation of Jesus is rather a way – of following, of faithfulness, of standing guard at our posts, for ‘no one knows about that day or hour’ (Mark 13:32). It is not a way of dispensing with mystery but of living in mystery.”

James Edwards, “The Gospel According to Mark”, page 400.
