Take one little paragraph in Luke chapter 23. Jesus has just died. Luke introduces us to a man named Joseph who was
a member of the council, a good and upright man,
who had not consented to their decision and action.
But the stories told throughout Scripture continually mess with my categories, and no more so than those told in the Gospels. And here's one of the secrets about the narrow path that Jesus calls us to: it's full of surprising people who we'd never think would be on it...and conspicuously absent are some of the people we thought for sure would be. Categories mean nothing...a person's heart is everything.
