Jesus is (not) my homeboy

This past October, Jane Barter-Moulaison offered up an ideaExchange session titled, “Jesus is (not) my homeboy”: toward a deeper understanding of Christ. Her goal in this presentation was to invite her audience to “go deeper” in understanding the person and work of Christ. With an eye to some key theologians of the fourth and early fifth centuries, we were offered hints of some of the radical social and even political implications of the Gospel of Christ.

Jane Barter Moulaison is Associate Professor of Theology and Church History at the University of Winnipeg. She is also a priest in the Diocese of Rupert’s Land.  Her forthcoming book, Thinking Christ: Christology and Critics, will be published in Spring 2012 by Fortress Press.

One Response to Jesus is (not) my homeboy

    I enjoyed this very much. The veiling issue reminded me of a documentary I caught about female political activists attending small villages in India to help them learn to be happier. One local asked what prompted the activists to assume they were unhappy,stating in fact that the women in the village were in fact very happy with their lives and situations. Also…Jane and Jamie have almost convinced me to stop telling people that Jesus and I are “like that!” I do wish I could attend this series, but many thanks to St. Ben’s for letting me drop in.
