James Carroll × 8 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD Ã Christ Actually A New York Times bestselling and widely admired Catholic writer explores how we can retrieve transcendent faith in modern times Critically acclaimed and bestselling author James Carroll has explored every aspect of Christianity faith and Jesus Christ except this central one What can we believe about and how can we believe in Jesus in the twenty first century in light of the Holocaust and other atrocities of the twentieth century and the drift from religi. I wanted to like this book I loved Constantine s Sword And I must say that after writing this review I find it valuable that I thought I would But it s a bit of a hard slog for some reason which is odd because much of it is historical Jesus scholarship which I often enjoy Perhaps it s because he makes a big deal of stuff that to me seems pretty standard ie that Jesus and the gospels were deeplycritically formed by their context of living through a brutal Roman occupation Having read Crossan and Aslan and having studied this in graduate school none of that is new news for me Perhaps I ll skip ahead to the what does this mean and enjoy that For some reason his prose style also feels tangled and awkward to me About every other paragraph ends with on this later which feels inelegant and like amateur hour in terms of writingI skipped to the end If you haven t read any historical Jesus scholarship and aren t familiar with modern textual critical and historical methods of scholarship on the texts and their cultural context this could be interesting However it s written in a very tangled style and Crossan and Aslan are better and clearer What he makes of all this in terms of the conceptual way he frames it feels like intellectual oatmeal there s no there there see the final paragraph The examples he gives of it are somewhat satisfying That Bonhoeffer s life is an interpretation of Christ actually in the middle of the twentieth century courage that is not separate from but embedded in the fear endemic to violence The German martyr was a man through whom the actual meaning of Jesus Christ clearly shines Bonhoeffer was a morally compromised man who opposed anti Semitism but refused to preside at the funeral of his sister s father in law who had not been baptized When Bonhoeffer joined the conspiracy to kill Hitler declaring himself ready to carry out the deed in person if necessary he regarded himself as plunged in evil a lesser evil than Hitler s to be sure but still evil uoting Charles Marsh Bonhoeffer s biographer Bonhoeffer moved within an inescapable paradox he gave his blessings to those who conspired to murder the Fuhrer while affirming the essential nonviolence of the gospel Bonhoeffer did not try to resolve the paradox by assuming moral innocence but accepted the paradox by incurring the guilt born out of responsible action 247 This seems an important point but it s buried deep in the book and surrounded with too many ualifications and grammatical circuitiesHis main points the surviving biblical texts must fundamentally be understood in the context of the extreme Roman violence against the Jews Hitler killed one in three living Jews a a ratio the Caesars may well have matched 54The Temple dominates the story of Jesus in 30 because the Temple in its destruction by Rome dominated the story in 70 of those who wrote the Gospel read the Gospel and heard the Gospel 58Instead of the usual way of seeing Jesus agony and death on the cross as uniue a one time instance of transcendent suffering extreme enough to redeem the fallen cosmos the view from the year 70 recall the ten thousand corpses hung on crosses ringing the Temple Mount would necessarily have seen the crucifixion of Jesus as mundane The consolation offered by the Passion account had to be less a matter of Jesus as the substitute sufferer than of Jesus as the fellow sufferer One could imagine surviving the Temple destroying savagery only because Jesus had Here of course is the power of the proclaimed Resurrection the hope that evolved into conviction that survival even of the worst fate imaginable was a possibility nay a promise 59the destruction of the Temple and the attendant mass violence were precisely what created the urgent need among the Jesus people for these texts just then 67Mark s apocalypse in Chapter 13 was an almost literal description of what was happening to the people for whom Mark was written Horrors not hallucinations assaults come from warrior Jews attacking Jesus people as rejecters of the anti Roman rebellion and always assaults coming indiscriminately from Romans who were crucifying five hundred Jews every day 72the Gospels post death and Resurrection post failure to return post Temple destruction and post dispersal from Palestine attributed meaning to Jesus that he simply could not have embraced himself 125Buddhist connection Salvation Jesus says is the recognition of a God who is interested in rushing out in greeting with the fatted calf prepared for the feast than in dispensing justice as the only God Creation is all the redemption we need Because this recognition happens now hope moves from the future to the present 133random thing of interest from a footnote Crossan cites medical

REVIEW ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF × James Carroll

James Carroll × 8 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD Ã Christ Actually Wide range of scholarship as well as his own acute searching as a believer Carroll takes a fresh look at the most familiar narratives of all Matthew Mark Luke and John Far from another book about the “historical Jesus” he takes the challenges of science and contemporary philosophy seriously He retrieves the power of Jesus’ profound ordinariness as an answer to his own last uestion what is the future of Jesus Christ as the key to a renewal of faith. How do we believe in God in the post religious twenty first century How do we follow Christ after the Holocaust and the Death of God According to Carroll s beautifully written analysis both Judaism and Christianity emerged out of just such faith shattering events as the world witnessed in the twentieth century As we continue to come to terms with the twentieth century Holocaust that spiritual black hole that inevitably bends and distorts our panglossian attempts to construct a conception of the world in which everything works for our own good Carroll reminds us that Judaism as we know it today was born out of a series of Holocausts of a sort brutal episodes in which the powers that be attempted to crush the cult of Yahweh and its subversive tendencies The Torah materialized fully during and just after the Babylonian exile of the sixth century BCE The prophetic Book of Daniel was written in the wake of the Maccabean Revolt against the Greco Persian Seleucid Empire The Jesus movement was the newest iteration of a long tradition of prophetic activism against oppressors of the Jewish people It was only after a great deal of cultural and theological reworking of the movement begun by the likes of Jesus Peter and Paul that Christianity emerged as a religion distinct and separate from Judaism Jesus was a Jew Christians know this of course but rarely stop to consider the implications of this fact Jesus lived and died as a Jew He was not some otherworldly divinity with luminous white garments and a halo floating over his head He was a Palestinian Jew who lived taught and met his death in a world scarred by war and genocide His life and teachings find their proper context in a world defined by the suffering the Jews experienced under the oppression of a pagan empire and its clients The understanding of Jesus as Christ the Son of God or the Son of Man by the earliest Christians among them the Gospel writers can only be understood in the context of the catastrophic Roman suppression of the Jewish Revolt and the destruction of Jerusalem and its temple in 70 CE Like other prophetic movements of the Jewish tradition the Jesus movement was inaugurated by war Carroll is very sophisticated in demonstrating how Jesus even Jesus as Christ can be understood in a thoroughly Jewish context Most interpreters of Christianity make a sharp distinction between in Marcus Borg s terms the Pre Easter Jesus of the Jewish tradition and the Post Easter Christ of the Greek New Testament Carroll shows that there was plenty of room within the Jewish tradition for someone to be spoken of as both human and divine I particularly enjoyed Carroll s analysis of the plight of women in the early Christian community Jesus s teaching and Paul s early authenticated writings seem to be radically sexually egalitarian Mary of Magdala was one of the most important of Jesus s disciples only to have her importance diminished within the Christian tradition by the erroneous association of this aristocratic patroness of the Jesus movement with the repentant prostitute who washes Jesus s feet while he dines with the Pharisees By the end of the first century CE the writings attributed to Paul have transitioned dramatically from the egalitarianism of a Paul who trusts his letter to the Romans to a woman named Phoebe considers a woman named Julia to be an apostle like himself and places the blame for the fall of man solely on Adam and not on Eve to a very conservative and patriarchal conception of church life in which woman are not to speak in church or assume any leadership position Fascinatingly Carroll associates this post temple destruction patriarchalism with a sort of national shame that must have wounded the pride of the Jewish community following their brutalization at the hands of the legions of Vespasian and Titus Starkly put one of the great unspoken conseuences of war for a civilian population is rape and the Roman legions as much as any marauding army of ancient or modern times were notorious for practicing wanton sexual violence against the women of the peoples they conuered When the women of a defeated people are raped this is not only an act of violence and denigration toward the women themselves it is directed as the ultimate insult toward the men of the defeated nation It demonstrates that the men cannot fulfill their primordial role as protectors of their women According to Carroll it is uite likely that the Roman reconuest of Jerusalem was accompanied by an atrocious bout of rape by the Roman legionaries This shame at having one s women defiled in this way was internalized by the post temple churchmen of the Jesus movement and Carroll speculates that this is what gave rise to the mandated subjection of women in some of the most notorious writings of the New Testament The despair of seeing one s women victimized in this way was internalized by the defeated men and this shame led to a presentation of women as a source of shame rather than the partners in discipleship which they seem to have been in the earliest decades A fascinating book both in its exploration of the historical context of Christianity and in its putting forward of a vision of renewal of faith in Christ as something to be lived out rather than something to be believed in our age which seems ready to discard belief
