202 - Jesus of Nazareth, Christ of the Cosmos: Model for Living Gospel Equality Today
Facilitators: Dr. Bridget Mary Meehan and Dr. Mary Theresa Streck

 Course Description

Jesus of Nazareth, a Jewish mystic, healer, visionary, prophet, teacher, Wisdom Incarnate, reflected the fullness of God’s love and presence. He is our model for living Gospel equality and justice today. He said a lot about money, power and exploitation. He occupied the Temple in Jerusalem and threw out those who were oppressing the poor. Jesus disciples included “women of means” like Mary of Magdala and other women who supported his ministry. Jesus reflects the reality that God loves the excluded, and desires their flourishing. He challenged religious and civil authorities, questioned religious beliefs, and presented a new path for inclusiveness , justice, equality that all believers need today to confront systemic injustice and global inequality in religion and society. He did this and so much more. This course presents an in-depth introduction to Jesus of Nazareth and Christ of the Cosmos from the perspective of contemporary scholarship.
