Choosing the Common Good (Part 1 of 3)

“We miss a lot in this story if we don’t understand it in terms of how much Roman imperialism harmed the masses in Judea and southern Galilee.”

Choosing the Common Good (Part 2 of 3)

“We must read this week’s story within this context. This backdrop also gives new insights into the political, economic, and social meaning of the gospels.”

Choosing the Common Good (Part 3 of 3)

Our doing better is not an act of charity. It’s the work of reclaiming our own humanity through acknowledging, valuing, and honoring the humanity of others.

Recommended Reading for October

Jesus and Empire: The Kingdom of God and the New World Disorder

by Richard A. Horsley

Building on his earlier studies of Jesus, Galilee, and the social upheavals in Roman Palestine, Horsley focuses his attention on how Jesus’ proclamation of the kingdom of God relates to Roman and Herodian power politics. In addition he examines how modern ideologies relate to Jesus’ proclamation.

One of RHM’s favorites for 2022!
