The Radical Politics of Jesus

The Christ Church Faith and Politics Lecture - Trinity Term 2018

The Radical Politics of Jesus

The Very Reverend Professor Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church

 

The stories Jesus told, and the people that Jesus mixed with and also healed, reveal a radical political dimension to his mission and ministry.  Jesus comforted the afflicted, and afflicted the comfortable.  Jesus turned the worldview of his age upside down and inside out.  His message was radical and revolutionary.  In this lecture, the Dean discusses the ‘politics’ of Jesus – and why these still matter in our time.
