Modern Christians are steeped in a language so distorted that it has become a stumbling block to the religion says internationally renowned Bible scholar Marcus J Borg Borg argues that Christianity s important words and the sacred texts and stories in which those words are embedded have been narrowed by a modern framework for the faith that emphasizes sin forgiveness Jesus dying for our sins and the afterlife Here Borg employs the historical metaphorical method for understanding Christian language that can restore for us these words of power and transformation For example br br i Redemption i now narrowly understood as Jesus saving us from sins so we can go to heaven but in the Bible it refers to being set free from slavery br br i Savior i now refers to Jesus as the one who saves us from our sins but in the Bible it has a rich and wonderful variety of meanings having nothing to do with the afterlife br br i Sacrifice i now refers to Jesus s death on the cross as payment for our sins but in the Bible it is never about substitutionary payment for sin br br In i Speaking Christian i Borg delivers a language for twenty first century Christians that grounds the faith in its deep and rich original roots and allows it once again to transform our lives, Top Jesus scholars Marcus J Borg amp John Dominic Crossan reveal a radical amp little known Jesus As both authors reacted to amp responded to questions about Mel Gibson s blockbuster em The Passion of the Christ em they discovered that many Christians are unclear on the details of events during the week leading up to Jesus crucifixion Using Mark s gospel as a guide they present a day by day account of Jesus final week of life They begin their story on Palm Sunday with two triumphal entries into Jerusalem The st entry that of Roman governor Pontius Pilate leading Roman soldiers into the city symbolized military strength The nd heralded a new kind of moral hero who was praised by the people as he rode in on a humble donkey The Jesus introduced herein is this new moral hero a more dangerous Jesus than the one enshrined in the church s traditional teachings em The Last Week em depicts Jesus giving up his life to protest power without justice amp to condemn the rich who lack concern for the poor In this vein at the end of the week Jesus marches up Calvary offering himself as a model for others to do the same when confronted by similar issues Informed challenged amp inspired we not only meet the historical Jesus but meet a new Jesus who engages amp invites us to follow him, No description available, How to have faith or even think about God without having to stifle modern rational thought is one of the most vital challenges facing many of us today Marcus J Borg author of the bestselling em Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time em traces his personal spiritual journey to the discovery of an authentic yet fully contemporary understanding of God In a compelling readable way he leads us from the distant authoritarian God of our childhood to an equally powerful dynamic adult image of God the beyond in our midst the life spirit that is within us and all around us that reconciles faith with science history critical thinking and religious pluralism
