Product Description

Amid competing portrayals of the "cynic Jesus," the "peasant Jesus," and the "apocalyptic Jesus," the "political Jesus" remains a marginal figure. Douglas E. Oakman argues that advances in our social-scientific understanding of the political economy of Roman Galilee, as well as advances in the so-called "Third Quest" for the historical Jesus, warrant a revival--and a critical revision--of H. S. Reimarus's understanding of Jesus as an instigator of revolutionary change.

Endorsements

Douglas Oakman is a demonstrated leader in the analysis of the economics, politics, and social conflicts of first-century Palestine. In this new work he pushes his political analysis even further, providing us with not only a fresh take on Jesus, but a fundamentally important one if one is to take seriously that Jesus was speaking (and acting) in ways that addressed the deepest concerns of his fellow Galileans and Judeans.
-K. C. Hanson,
co-author of Palestine in the Time of Jesus

Jesus the tax resister? An advocate of debt release--who allowed debtors to seize goods for subsistence? A Broker of Divine healing and restoration of honor for the marginales? Oakman challenges to the core the conveniently apolitical Jesus so tirelessly constructed and defended by Western interpreters.
-Richard Rohrbaugh,
Lewis and Clark College
