Jesus in Cultural Complexity has the honour of hosting prof. Bernadette Brooten who will base the lecture on her recently published book «Beyond Slavery – Overcoming Its Religious and Sexual Legacies».
Lecture by Halvor Moxnes.
The time when Jesus was portrayed exclusively as a salvation figure in Christianity and as a symbol for the West and European nationalism is gone. Christians in the West are surprised to learn about the role that Jesus plays in Islam, and ideological criticism challenges the picture of a mono-cultural Jesus.
Images of Jesus as mirrors of religious and national identities are now challenged by cultural complexity. Can the image of Jesus become a symbol for interreligious dialogue with Islam?
