In one song, Norman makes the connection between Jesus and the hippies through footwear: “I’m looking for the footprints of the man who wears the sandals.” This, despite the fact that Jesus instructed his disciples not to wear sandals (cf. Matthew 10:10; Luke 10:4). The connection between hippies and the Jesus movement has since received a somewhat notorious boost from historical scholarship in John Dominic Crossan’s The Historical Jesus: The Life of a Mediterranean Jewish Peasant (New York: HarperSanFrancisco, 1991), p. 421: “They were hippies in a world of Augustan yuppies.”
