Jesus, Justice and the Reign of God

William Herzog

Jesus, Justice and the Reign of God

William Herzog

$59.99

Paperback
By building on his view of Jesus first developed in Parables as Subversive Speech, William Herzog argues that Jesus is intensely interested in the social, political, and economic well-being of humanity. Herzog examines the conflict stories, exorcisms/healings, and the passion narrative to develop this thesis. In the final chapter, he interprets the resurrection in light of this viewpoint.While his earlier work focused on the sayings of Jesus, here Herzog centers on the actions of Jesus, finding them every bit as subversive to his day and age. Herzog succeeds in advancing the scholarly debate on Jesus studies while making his insights readily available to a wide readership.
