Surprising New Insights into the Political and Ethical Teaching of Jesus

In what way was Jesus a revolutionary figure? He was not a politician in the normal sense of the word,

but his spiritual vision clearly had ethical and political implications for his world—and for ours.

In four separate studies, we will consider:

  • Driving concerns that shaped the faith of Jesus into a powerful dynamic that would survive his horrific death and make him the most influential person who has ever lived;

  • The oft-neglected relationship between his famous Beatitudes and social justice;

  • The impact that slavery as a widespread social institution may have had on Jesus’ moral vision and priorities;

  • The conflict Jesus himself and the Gospel authors apparently experienced regarding the question of whether biblical commandments remain applicable in contexts for which they were not originally intended.

Together, the four talks will serve to highlight guiding principles for Christians struggling to be faithful to Jesus’ vision of justice and the reign of God in the 21st century.
