Encountering Jesus in the Scriptures [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

Encountering Jesus in the Scriptures DANIEL J. HARRINGTON, S.J. & CHRISTOPHER R. MATTHEWS Among the various significant issues addressed by the twentyseven writings that make up the New Testament, two fundamental questions are, Who is Jesus? and Why is he important? The four Gospels look like biographies (at least in the ancient sense) and provide much information about Jesus' life, teachings, activities, and death. However, none of them tells the whole story about Jesus. In fact, they all draw us back to the haunting question that Jesus posed to Peter and the other disciples, "But who do you say that I am?" (Mark 8:29). In recent years, that question has occasioned thousands of scholarly books and articles. This development from 1985 to the present is sometimes called the "Third Quest of the Historical Jesus." The "First Quest" took place from the late 18th to the early 20th century, and was brilliantly catalogued by Albert Schweitzer. The "Second Quest" refers to a bri...

Jesus: What's Fact? What's Fiction? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

Jesus: What's Fact? What's Fiction? BY DANIEL J. HARRINGTON, S.J. The question of Jesus' identity is central to us as Christians. Because Christianity is an incarnational faith—centered on Jesus, the Word of God who became flesh and dwelt among us —it is important to learn as much as we can about the Jesus of history. He lived in the land of Israel during what we now call the first century. The question of his identity still has great relevance for us in the early 21st century. Just consider the recent media attention received by Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. When Jesus asked his disciples, "Who do people say that I am?" he got several different answers: John the Baptist, Elijah, one of the prophets. Even when Peter identified Jesus correctly as the Messiah, Jesus felt the need to redefine messiahship in terms of his coming passion, death, and resurrection. A Difficult Question While important, the question about Jesus' identity is difficu...

CLIFFORD [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

CLIFFORD As a biblical scholar who focuses on the Old Testament (Hebrew Scriptures), I begin the story of Jesus with the creation of the world and with the nature of God revealed in that loving and self-communicating act. The act of creation poses the question, How could God remain aloof and mute after bringing the beautiful world and its lively inhabitants into being? In the Christian view, key events in the story lead to Jesus Christ: God's generous creation, human unwillingness to live gracefully in it, and God's decision to stay with humans no matter what and to covenant with a single family (Abraham's) in order to be in relationship to all the nations. Out of respect for human freedom, God drew near in ways that elicited free response in word and authoritative teaching (Torah), wind (spirit), wisdom, a strong hand and outstretched arm, Temple, and king. These modes of presence are found in the Old Testament and transposed in the New Testament. All of them are embodiments of God...

Conceived by the Holy Spirit, Born of the Virgin Mary [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

Conceived by the Holy Spirit, Born of the Virgin Mary BY BARBARA E. BOWE, R.S.C.J. The birth of every human being is in some real sense a miraculous event. Biologically, the joining of egg and sperm, the combination of X and Y chromosomes, the slow process of development in the mother's womb, and finally the mystery of birth itself produces awe and wonder in even the most hardened and stoic person. The gift of new life in the birth of a child draws all of us who witness it close to God. No wonder then that the psalmist turns to this image to speak about the mystery of human life and God's creative shaping of the human person: You have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb. I praise you, so wonderfully you made me; wonderful are your works (Ps 139:13-14). But how much more astonishing is the birth of the Son of God! "We Believe" By the creedal affirmation that Jesus was "conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary," we profess our belief in the extraordina...

Jesus and the Kingdom of God [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

Jesus and the Kingdom of God BY JOHN R. DONAHUE, S.J. The kingdom of God assumes a central place in contemporary New Testament scholarship. A wide spectrum of New Testament scholars of all denominations significantly agrees that the central theme of the public proclamation of Jesus was the arrival of God's powerful reign. Beyond this consensus is a virtual storm of scholarly discussion and debate. The kingdom is a major topic in three recent scholarly tomes: Jems: A Marginal Jew, vol. 2, by John P. Meier; 1 Jesus and the Victory of God, by N. T. Wright; 2 and Jesus Remembered, by James D. G. Dunn.' The Greek term itself, basileia ton theou (literally, "kingdom of God"), expresses the power of God active in the ministry of Jesus, but it also implies a spatial or local dimension, as in "United Kingdom." The expression is a tensive symbol, evoking a host of associations rather than a single referent. The proclamation has a clear eschatological dimension —the final and definitive rule o...

The Sermon on the Mount [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

The Sermon on the Mount BY DANIEL J. HARRINGTON, S.J. What Is It? The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7 is arguably the best known part of the Bible. If people today know any Bible passages at all, they probably know the beatitudes (Matt 5:312), the Lord's Prayer (6:9-13), the "lilies of the field" (6:28-30), and the Golden Rule (7:12). All these are from the Sermon on the Mount. Great Christian (Martin Luther King) and non-Christian (Gandhi) leaders of the twentieth century appealed to its principles in their campaigns for justice and freedom. Its influence on Christian ethics/moral theology has been enormous. The Sermon on the Mount is widely admired and loved, and its importance is beyond measure. But what is it? This article answers that question first descriptively by looking at the sermon s origin, context, and content. Then it takes up the more difficult questions of genre and theological significance. Although it is relatively easy to describe the sermon, it is much more di...

LEAHY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

LEAHY Like so many Christians and members of the Catholic Church, I find inspiration and challenge in Scripture. My faith, relationship with Christ, and Jesuit vocation have been especially shaped by New Testament passages about Jesus — his words and actions as well as responses to him. Throughout his ministry, Jesus maintained his focus and broader mission. His words invite all who profess to follow him to consider the goals and aspirations that animate their lives, and I have always found them a model response and attitude for Jesuits and the mission of the Society of Jesus. In the New Testament, Jesus calls for decisions and makes demands on people, just as life does. He has a claim on us and on what we do. For me, this claim is like an unwavering gaze, silent but intense. He invites us to surrender ourselves to him and to live for others. I believe I am free to respond and I do not feel coerced. Yet there would be an incompleteness in me without fidelity to Christ and his messag...

The Miracles of Jesus [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

The Miracles of Jesus BY EUGENE HENSEII, 0.5.8. All four Gospels attest that Jesus worked miracles. In the Gospel of Mark, the first nine chapters are structured around the miracles of Jesus. Obviously, these actions of Jesus were very important to the Evangelists and to the sources from which they received their material. Quite often, the stories of Jesus that people today find themselves most drawn to come from his miracles. There can be no doubt that miracles play a very significant role in the life and ministry of Jesus as portrayed in the Gospels. What is not so clear, however, is how these actions of Jesus are to be understood. What are they and what do they mean? Traditionally, the interpretation of miracles has been undertaken from one of two extremes. The first extreme comes from the literalists. This approach claims that the miracles describe actions that Jesus literally did in the exact manner the biblical text narrates them. They are literal factual events which must be ...

MAHONEY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

MAHONEY In the Scriptures, I encounter Jesus in word and deed, as teacher and poet. The poetic Jesus counsels those anxious about "food and drink," about things of the world (Matt 6:24-33). Far from an abstract sermon, he draws an image from "how the lilies grow in the fields; they do not work, they do not spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his splendor was not attired like one of them." Likewise, "do not be anxious," "set your mind on God's kingdom...and all the rest come to you as well." Also in Matthew, he warns against quick and rash judgment of others, against hypocrisy: "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye, with never a thought for the plank in your own?" (7:1-5). To the rich young man feeling that he qualifies for eternal life by following the commandments, Jesus reminds him that he must do more: "Go, sell everything you have, and give to the poor, then come and follow me." His response in Mark's Gospel calls for the skill of a great actor: "A...

Up Against Caesar: Jesus and Paul versus Empire [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

Up Against Caesar: Jesus and Paul versus Empire BY JOHN DART The "kingdom" of God and "gospel" are usually thought of as terms unique to Christianity. And who else but Jesus was called not only "the Son of God" but also "Lord" and "Savior"? In fact, say biblical experts, these terms and concepts were already familiar to residents of the Roman Empire who knew them as references to the authority and divinity of the emperors, beginning notably with Caesar Augustus before the dawn of the first century. Julius Caesar was assassinated on the Ides of March in 44 B.C. When a comet was later visible on July nights, Octavius, the adopted son and heir of Julius Caesar, promoted the idea that it was a sign that the divine Caesar was on his way to heaven. When Roman law in 42 B.C. deified Julius Caesar, the status of Octavius, who took the name Augustus, was strengthened by adding the phrase "son of God." Poets celebrated the divinity associated with Augustus, and across the empire coins, monume...

The Study of Women in the Early Church [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

The Study of Women in the Early Church BY CAROLYN OSIEK, R.S.C.J. In popular view, it is probably the success of the bestseller The Da Vinci Code that has raised new questions from millions of avid readers about women in the early church, especially Mary Magdalene. Its fast-moving sleuth tale continues to sell and, unfortunately, its wildly inaccurate historical interludes are included. But for historians, theologians, and biblical scholars, the real story is even more exciting and more complex. What follows is a brief recap of what is being discovered, and the questions and problems that remain, in the study of women in the early church. Material Evidence Let's start with the things we can see and touch, what archaeologists and historians call "material culture." Though much visual art (such as paintings) has not survived, still some of it has. For example, in places like Pompeii and Herculaneum, the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius on August 24 in the year 79 preserved many...

PERKINS [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

PERKINS "Finding Jesus" evokes a spirituality of pious Bible reading, projecting one's own psychocultural world onto the text. Having been allergic to that approach since learning Latin and Greek in middle school, I would answer the "finding Jesus" question as a student of ancient cultures. By the time I could read Greek, it was easy to see that from a literary point of view, the four canonical Gospels provide distinctive portraits of Jesus. So the "Jesus" in question is a mystery in his own time as much as ours. But there is another way to parse the question as I learned on first meeting the late Krister Stendahl when I was in college. For Jesus —and the Evangelists—the "Scriptures" are Jewish sacred books, not the Christian appendix. Is there a sense in which one can find Jesus in those Scriptures? Historical study teaches us to appreciate the Torah, Prophets, and Writings as witnesses of faith to their own circumstances, not as an elaborate code only unlocked by the Jesus story. ...

Misusing Jesus [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

Misusing Jesus BY AMY-JILL LEVINE How the Church Divorces Jesus from Judaism The fact that Jesus was a Jew has not gone unrecognized. Libraries and bookstores are replete with volumes bearing such titles as Jesus the Jew, The Galilean Jewishness of Jesus, Jesus and the World of Judaism, The Religion of Jesus the Jew, Jesus in His Jewish Context, The Jewish Reclamation of Jesus , and three volumes (and counting) of A Marginal Jew. The point is more than simply a historical observation. Numerous churches today acknowledge their intimate connection to Judaism: connections born from Scripture, history, theology, and, as Paul puts it, Christ "according to the flesh" (Rom 9:5). Nevertheless, when it comes to the pew, the pulpit, and often the classroom, even when Christian congregants, ministers, and professors do acknowledge that Jesus was Jewish, they often provide no content for the label. The claim that "Jesus was a Jew" may be historically true, but it is not central to the teaching ...

WILT [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008

WILT As a child, I thrilled to the poetry of the Scriptures I heard each Sunday, but as for encountering Jesus himself—it was the confessional. I imagined him on the other side of the screen, taking in the Bad News from one after another of us, his human head bowed in weariness (and even, I ventured, boredom) while his mighty heart expanded to encompass the Bad News. Kind of like, I thought twenty years later, "Hill Street Blues" chief of detectives Frank Furillo, his erect spine carrying his slumping flesh as one after another, criminal stupidity, puerile tragedy, banal enormity manifested on city streets. I meet this Jesus in the Scriptures: "Be thou clean....Thy sins are forgiven thee. What does your reason tell you —is it easier to say thy sins be forgiven thee, or to say rise up and walk?" (Luke 5:13, 20-23). Thisjesus is wearied by our insistence on signs: this evil generation, they seek a sign. (Luke 11:29). But he gives us our signs, for among the many ways he knows himself ...
