Jesus and the Politics of Interpretation by Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The answer to the commodification of "Jesus" is not a rejection of critical scholarship and Jesus research but a call for their investigation in terms of ideology critique and ethics. By claiming to produce knowledge about the "real" Jesus, Schussler Fiorenza points out, mainstream as well as feminist scholars refuse to stand accountable for their reconstructive cultural models and theological interests. Hence, she calls for an ethics of interpretation that can explore such a scholarly politics of meaning, rather than the ideological discourses on "Jesus and Women" that are fraught with both anti-Judaism and anti-feminism.

Table of Contents

The historical Jesus and the politics of meaning who do they say I am?; the quest for the historical Jesus; Jesus matters - historical and theological approaches; search of the "Real" Jesus - the social-scientific quest; of specks, beams, and methods - anti-Judaism and anti-feminism; to realize the vision: feminist Jesus discourses.
