A daring examination of the foundational event of Christianity, and an inspiring vision for reconciliation between Jesus and Christians.
Using Approaches from the Hebrew interpretive tradition to discern the actual events surrounding Jesus' death, Biship Spong questions the historical validity of a literal narrative concerning the Resurrection. He asserts that the resurrection story was born in an experience that opened the disciples' eyes to the reality of God and the meaning of Jesus of Nazareth. Spong traces the Christian origins of anti-Semitism to the Church's fabrication of the ultimate Jewish scapegoat, Judas Iscariot. He affirms the inclusiveness of the Christian message and emphasizes the necessity of mutual integrity and respect among Christians and Jews.
