The ‘hour’ of Jesus is the hour of the great stepping-beyond, the hour of transformation, and this metamorphosis of being is brought about through agape. It is agape ‘to the end’ - and here John anticipates the final word of the dying Jesus: tetelestai - ‘it is finished’ (19:30). This end (telos), this totality of self-giving, of remolding the whole of being - this is what it means to give oneself even unto death.

We are witnessing a profound assault on book publishing and literature, on the text itself—not from ebooks, which publishers are slowly, painfully coming around to after a long resistance, or the internet, which is after all entirely made of text—but from applications, “enhanced” books and reductive notions of literary experience. As I’ve written about before, in the context of advertising, publishers’ reactions to new technologies betray a profound lack of confidence in the text itself. We are being distracted by shiny things.
