James K. Baxter from Autumn Testament
King Jesus, after a day or a week of bitching
I come back always to your bread and salt,
Because no other man, no other God,
Suffered our pains with us minute by minute
And asked us to die with him.

Nikos Kazantzakis from The Last Temptation of Christ
Jesus uttered a triumphant cry: "It is accomplished!" and it was as though he had said: "Everything has begun!"
