Radical Jesus

As Marcus Borg observes, “the Bible is both personal and political. It is about God’s passion for a different kind of world – one in which people have enough, not as the result of charity but as the fruit of justice, and in which nations do not war against one another. God’s passion is for a world very different from domination systems, large and small, ancient and modern, systems so common that they can be called the normalcy of civilization.

So also the way of Jesus was both personal and political. It was about personal transformation. And it was political, a path of resistance to the domination system and advice of an alternative vision of life together under God. His counteradvocacy, his passion for God’s passion, led to his execution.”
