Marshall McLuhan: in Jesus, "the medium is the message"

Marshall McLuhan, a celebrity philosopher of communication theory in the 1970s and 1980s and a Catholic convert, had this to say among his great quotes:
“In Jesus Christ, there is no distance or separation between the medium and the message,” McLuhan would write. “It’s the one case where we can say that the medium and the message are fully one and the same.”
