    The scapegoat was offered to Azazel, the “fierce god” in the wilderness. Since the goat bore all the sins of the people, it belonged to the demonic, and was their kill. I believe that demonic powers were ultimately responsible for crucifying Jesus. By our being “in” him, we also have been crucified and are now free from whatever legal claim those powers had on us.

    If one is familiar with Girard one wonders if this posting is mocking him, it is in really poor taste!

    I’ve been seeing a lot of mention of Girard in progressive Christian circles. If you write any articles on him I’ll gladly read them!
