Product Description

William Herzog bridges the gap between purely historical and theological interpretations of the life of Jesus with a compelling synthesis of politics and theology, faith and history. Herzog portrays Jesus as a "prophet of the justice of the reign of God."By building on his view of Jesus first developed in Parables as Subversive Speech, Herzog argues that Jesus is intensely interested in the social, political, and economic well-being of humanity. He examines the conflict stories, exorcisms/healings, and the passion narrative to develop his thesis and, in the final chapter, he interprets the resurrection in light of this viewpoint.
