Product Description

Scholars are agreed that the central metaphor in Jesus' proclamation was the kingdom of God. But what did that phrase mean in the first-century Palestinian world of Jesus? Since it is a political metaphor, what did Jesus envision as the political import of his message? Since this is tied to the political economy, how was that structured in Jesus' day? How is the violence of Jesus' mediterranean world addressed in the kingdom? And how does "self-denial" fit into Jesus' agenda? Malina takes on these questions in a very accessible way, providing a social-scientific analysis. This means that he brings to bear explicit models and a comparative approach in an exciting interpretation of what Jesus was up to and how his first-century audience would have heard him.
