O Evangelho segundo Jesus Cristo

Free download Ø O Evangelho segundo Jesus Cristo About the meaning of Christianity and the Church as an institution Translated by Giovanni Pontiero. Saramago has me at a loss for words yet again I can t decide if this is his best work from what I have read of his but it definitely is at least eual to Blindness and Death with Interruptions I m not a religious person so I had no problem with the liberties he took in this novel In fact I was blown away by his characterization of Jesus Christ and how he managed to humanize him The writing is also pure Saramago it bewitches you and doesn t let you go It also feels so effortless he really is a God Speaking of Gods the interaction between Jesus and God is something I don t think I ll be able to forget anytime soon Wow

Free download Ø O Evangelho segundo Jesus Cristo This is a skeptic' s journey into the meaning of God and of human existence At once an ironic rend. This is a bold fearless work and definitely not for the faint hearted readers I am not surprised that when this was originally published in 1991 it created lots of controversies with the Catholic Church condemning Jose Saramago for harboring anti religious vision and his own Portuguese government asking the European Literary Prize to remove this from its shortlist because of the book s offensive content to religion Despite this book s existence Saramago won the 1998 Nobel Prize for LiteratureThis is my third Saramago Blindness Double were my others and my fourth book in what seems to be an unnamed genre re telling of the life of Jesus Christ Last year I read The Last Temptation of Christ 1960 by Nikos Kazantzakis and Christ the Lord Out of Egypt 2005 and Christ the Lord The Road to Cana 2008 by Anne Rice In my book Temptation came first and I am glad I read it first so the idea of twisting the canons by a mere mortal who lived in our generation is not new translation not shocking For me Anne Rice s books now seem to be just afterthoughts of these two worksBut why re tell the life of Jesus Christ Because of the mysterious gap in his younger years Because of the weakening fate of the believers Because and people are now turning into atheism or other religions This depends on what we believe or what each of us was taught to believe when we were younger However since this book is about the life of Jesus Christ who s being venerated by than half of the people in the world then I don t want to dwell on religion I am leaving this kind of discussion on faith to some other forums like my review on my long staying currently read book The Holy Bible Revised Standard Edition that I started reading in September last year and currently in The Book of Ezekiel and hope to finish all books before the end of this yearI picked this book because I loved the two works of Saramago Also it is Lenten Season and I thought that a Nobel laureate like him would not blaspheme paint false pictures or mock Jesus Christ Yes he did those in this book I almost wanted to say that this should rather be called The Gospel According to Jose Saramago but for me it is disrespectful to a great mind like him After all he is already dead was an atheist and a writer so it is not nice for a mere literary enthusiast like me to criticize a dead person who can no longer defend himself argue with his beliefs as he did not believe on any god and said to be a pessimist and he can invoke poetic devise twisting facts for the sake of telling a grappling story In other words he had or has all the right to come up with a work like this and his cries for oppression due to censorship when the Portuguese government or the Catholic Church called for banning of this are in my opinion all uncalled for Jesus having sex with Mary Magdalene in the whorehouse without the blessing of marriage The demon asking Jesus to use a sheep for sexual release An angel posing as a beggar during the Annunciation scene The same beggar angel walking with Mary to Bethlehem provoking jealousy to the doubting Joseph Three shepherds instead of 3 kings visiting the family in the Bethlehem Joseph crucified and dying on the cross mistaken as a zealot Jesus seeing God in the desert Jesus riding on the boat with the God and the Devil These are some of the shocking deviations from the story that Saramago imagined and incorporated to come up with an irreverent profound skeptical funny heretical deeply philosophical provocative and compelling work Source Harold Robbin who says that this is his favorite work of Saramago So far I agreeSo how do you rate a book with a disgusting content yet beautifully written Think J G Ballard s Crash Maruis de Sade s 120 Days of Sodom or Bret Easton Ellis American Psycho or even Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov The first time I read them I was totally disgusted and hated them to the max Now I realized I missed the whole point They are really written to shock so their authors can bring the message to the tableSo what message does The Gospel According to Jesus Christ want us to realize For me it is beyond further humanizing Jesus Christ It is what choices regardless whether he is man god or a their combination he had before he said yes to his Father for being the sacrificial lamb to propagate Christianity in the world But than the message one thing that I enjoyed reading this book is its storytelling style Many parts are totally hilarious and that style when Saramago directly addressing the reader and he opens your thought by throwing contemporary works and philosophy is just awesome I have never seen this in any of the works of novelists whose books I so far sampled I am rating this with a 4 I really liked it but will probably not recommend this to anyone I d rather that they decide for themselves If they are as open minded as my friend and reading buddy Angus then I would say go If not then check how strong is your faith as Saramago can sway you to uestion your long held beliefs It s like having an clever sweet talker and well read atheist in your Bible reading group come one Sunday and he starts uestioning what is written in the gospel but he is not obnoxious because he knows what he is talking about If you are still in Cathecism 101 don t ever dare open this book

Free download Ø O Evangelho segundo Jesus Cristo Ering of the life of Christ and a beautiful novel Saramago' s tale has sparked intense discussion. Or Adolescent Jesus as Imagined by a Brilliant Authorial AtheistThat s unfair and reductive however Jose Saramago is an atheist and the book does explore the parts of Jesus life that most people pretend didn t exist early adolescence to just before the time when he knew he had Messianic Son of God Superpowers while at the same time gently but firmly uestioning the nature of God divinity religious fervor manifesting itself as the oppression of others bizarre religious ritual and religious hypocrisy The familiar Biblical story arc of Mary and Joseph s pilgrimage to Bethlehem for a census begins the story though Saramago uickly dispenses with any notion that Mary was a virgin she also has in uick succession many other children after Jesus birth Both of these points of course are regarded as highly sacredcontroversial in most Church law it is essential that the Mother of God be stripped of her sexuality and it has long been denied mostly by the Catholic church that Mary gave birth to any other children besides Jesus Throughout the novel Jesus uestions himself his status as the son of God the idea that he may be the Messiah of the Jewish people and even God s own divine plan revealed to Jesus as a stunning display of hubris arrogance and selfishness but always remains steadfast in his devotion to Mary Magdalene with whom he lives freely and openly in a sexual relationship outside the bonds of marriage and whom he treats as eually as any man The book makes clear from page one the wretchedly inferior status of women in ancient Judaic timesSaramago points out something that many modern Christians tend to forget in their re branding of God as a benevolent FatherProtectorWish Granter the God of the ancient Jews and the Old Testament was a complete prick If God singled you out for his special attention that was just as frightening as his anger toward you He pissed in Job s face played keep away with Moses and the Promised Land turned Lot s wife into a pillar of salt simply for showing a bit of momentary concern for her neighbors and totally Punk d Abraham about that whole son sacrificing thing with all the eual amounts of jealousy and wrath that Old Testament God is famous forOf course Satan makes an appearance as a character but Saramago fashions him as a much interesting multifaceted figure possessed of depth humor and perhaps not as evil as he s often cast He and God are posited to be old friends not necessarily enemies and in a co dependent relationship of sorts in an arrangement to preserve the others power A very morallyreligiously complex and long chapter is devoted to this balance of power and for me was the climax of the novel while God is telling Jesus of the horrific events that will occur in his name Saramago devotes four pages of God s dialogue to alphabetically listing the names of martyred saints and the graphically violent ways in which they were killed for their belief The prose is beautiful but Saramago s authorial imprint and style is his distinct lack of uotation marks in dialogue and lack of paragraph breaks during dialogue between characters It can be difficult to follow particularly in situations with than two characters speaking This is highly recommended for believers and non believers alike
