Myth

"And of course the great story-telling media and television and cinema play major roles in socialization and ideological formation. We must learn to discern hegemonic and subversive characteristics and functions of popular narrative discourse."    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus


"I agree that the demythologizing project was quite wrongheaded; we should instead be about understanding how myth functions as political discourse—in antiquity and today."    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus


"Hegemonic ideology can be combated only with subversive ideology . . . the gospel writers were not mere observers of the ideological struggles of their time, but deeply involved in the war of myths."    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus


"The preoccupation with 'historicity' belongs of course peculiarly to nineteenth-century rationalism. Contemporary historians increasingly admit that 'history in the strict sense is a story about events, not the events themselves . . . [it] is always constructed, never reconstructed.'"    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus
