Jesus and the Powers

Full Product Description

Refuting a false dichotomy between "politics" and "religion" in Jesus' world (and our own), Jesus and the Powers rediscovers Jesus' response to the imperial power of his day. Richard A. Horsley describes the relevance of political realities under great empires for understanding the rise of covenantal theology and apocalyptic vision in Israel's history. Then he explores aspects of Jesus' activity in the context of the Roman Empire. Horsley examines Jesus as an exorcist and prophetic figure and the character of his death by crucifixion. He also shows how the community life in the early Pauline assemblies gave form to a new response to imperial powers - and stimulus to contemporary readers to re-imagine their own response to political realities in our own day.

Jesus and the Powers by Richard A. Horsley was published by Augsburg Fortress Publishers in October 2010 and is our 31331st best seller. The ISBN for Jesus and the Powers is 9780800697082.
