              The Power of Parable: How Fiction by Jesus Became Fiction about Jesus (Paperback)

              The world's foremost Jesus scholar John Dominic Crossan shows us how the parables present throughout the New Testament not only reveal what Jesus wanted to teach but also provide the key for explaining how the Gospels' writers sought to explain the Prophet of Nazareth to the worl...d. In this meaningful exploration of the metaphorical stories told by Jesus and the Gospel writers, Crossan combines the biblical expertise of his The Greatest Prayer with a historical and social analysis that harkens closely to his Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography, creating an illuminating and nuanced exploration of the Scripture that fans of Marcus Borg and Bart Ehrman will find fascinating and essential.

              The First Christmas: What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus's Birth (EPUB ebook)

              By Borg, Marcus J.; Crossan, John Dominic

              <p class=MsoNormal>"Who could argue with the message the authors draw from the Bible's Christmas stories? Light in the darkest time of the year, hope in a period of creeping despair-these are powerful and universal themes that can give everyone a stake in Christmas." -<?xml:names...pace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">USA</st1:place></st1:country-region> Today<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p><p class=MsoNormal><o:p></o:p><p class=MsoNormal>In The First Christmas Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan-top Jesus scholars and authors of The Last Week-help us see the real Christmas story buried in the familiar Bible accounts. Basing their interpretations on the two nativity narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, Borg and Crossan focus on the literal story-the inner truth rather than the historical facts-to offer a clear and uplifting message of hope and peace. With The First Christmas readers get a fresh, deep, and new understanding of the nativity story, enabling us to better appreciate the powerful message of the Gospels.<o:p></o:p>

              God and Empire: Jesus Against Rome, Then and Now (EPUB ebook)

              By Crossan, John Dominic

              The bestselling author and prominent New Testament scholar draws parallels between 1st-century Roman Empire and 21st-century United States, showing how the radical messages of Jesus and Paul can lead us to peace today Using the tools of expert biblical scholarship and a keen eye ...for current events, bestselling author John Dominic Crossan deftly presents the tensions exhibited in the Bible between political power and God's justice. Through the revolutionary messages of Jesus and Paul, Crossan reveals what the Bible has to say about land and economy, violence and retribution, justice and peace, and ultimately, redemption. He examines the meaning of &#8220kingdom of God&#8221 prophesized by Jesus, and the equality recommended to Paul by his churches, contrasting these messages of peace against the misinterpreted apocalyptic vision from the book of Revelations, that has been co-opted by modern right-wing theologians and televangelists to justify the United State's military actions in the Middle East.

              The First Paul: Reclaiming the Radical Visionary Behind the Church's Conservative Icon (EPUB ebook)

              By Borg, Marcus J.; Crossan, John Dominic

              "Borg and Crossan reveal a figure who, besides being neither anti-Semitic, anti-sex, nor misogynist, stresses social and political equality among Christians and between them and others. A refreshing and heartening exculpation of a still routinely maligned figure of the first impo...rtance to culture and civilization." - Booklist (starred review) John Dominic Crossan and Marcus J. Borg-two of the world's top-selling Christian scholars and the bestselling authors of The Last Week and The First Christmas-once again shake up the status quo by arguing that the message of the apostle Paul, considered by many to be the second most important figure in Christianity, has been domesticated by the church. Borg and Crossan turn the common perception of Paul on its head, revealing him as a radical follower of Jesus whose core message is still relevant today.

              La Ultima Semana: Un Relato Diario de la Ultima Semana de Jesus en Jerusalen
                

              La Ultima Semana: Un Relato Diario de la Ultima Semana de Jesus en Jerusalen (EPUB ebook)

              By Borg, Marcus J.; Crossan, John Dominic

              Los destacados especialistas en Jesus, Marcus J. Borg y John Dominic Crossan, se unen para revelarnos un Jesus radicalmente nuevo y poco conocido. Cuando ambos autores reaccionaron y respondieron preguntas sobre el exitoso filme de Mel Gibson, La Pasion de Jesucristo, descubriero...n que muchos cristianos no tienen claro los detalles de los acontecimientos de la semana que condujo a Jesus a su muerte en la cruz. Usando el evangelio de Marcos como guia, Borg y Crossan presentan un relato dia a dia de la ultima semana de vida de Jesus. Comienzan su historia el Domingo de Ramos con dos entradas triunfales a Jerusalen. La primera entrada, la del gobernador romano Poncio Pilatos que conduce soldados romanos dentro de la ciudad, simboliza la fuerza militar. La segunda anuncia un nuevo tipo de heroe moral que es alabado por la gente mientras va montado sobre un humilde burro. El Jesus presentado por Borg y Crossan es este nuevo heroe moral, un Jesus mas peligroso que el consagrado en las ensenanzas tradicionales de la iglesia. La Ultima Semana pinta a un Jesus que renuncia a su vida para protestar contra el poder sin justicia y para condenar al rico a quien no le importa el pobre. Comprometido con esto, al termino de la semana Jesus marcha hacia el Calvario, ofreciendose como modelo para que otros hagan lo mismo cuando se enfrenten a cuestiones similares. Informados, desafiados e inspirados no solo nos encontramos con el Jesus historico, sino tambien con un nuevo Jesus que nos compromete y nos invita a seguirlo.
