Mary, Jesus, and Jobs
Neo-Jungian Clarissa Pinkola Estes asserts that if Mary, Mother of Jesus, were born today, "Mary would be a teenage girl-gang leader." As shocking as this may sound, one wonders what occupation Jesus or any prophet would have if born today. Would they be involved with computers, biotechnology, or the entertainment industry, or would they be farmers and fishermen? Would a Jesus in the 21st Century be exploring other planets and stars?
