Jesus, Justice and the Reign of God by II William R. Herzog

Book Description

By building on his view of Jesus first developed in Parables as Subversive Speech, William Herzog II argues that Jesus is intensely interested in the social, political, and economic well-being of humanity. He examines the conflict stories, exorcisms/healings, and the passion narrative to develop his thesis and, in the final chapter, he interprets the resurrection in light of this viewpoint.

Books By Author II William R. Herzog

Prophet and Teacher by II William R. Herzog Prophet and Teacher, Paperback (July 2005)

Presents an introduction for seminary and college students to the discussion about the historical Jesus. The author reports on the findings of the Jesus Seminar and also traces other scholarly work in Jesus studies, but with an eye to the theological. He asks what difference the Historical Jesus makes in our understanding of the Gospels.

Parables as Subversive Speech by II William R. Herzog Parables as Subversive Speech, Paperback (December 1999)

Herzog shows that the focus of the parables was not on a vision of the glory of the reign of God but on the gory details of the way oppression served the interests of the ruling class. The parables were a form of social analysis, as well as a form of theological reflection. Herzog demonstrates this dual nature using nine parables as examples.
