Holy Week and Easter

John Domenic Crossan is an ex RC priest, now full time theologian who writes radically about Jesus life, death and resurrection. Here are some radical thoughts from him as we approach this Holy Week and Easter. I agree with them.

"Jesus didn't bodily rise from the dead," he says. "The first Christians told Jesus' resurrection story as a parable, not as a fact.

"Crucifixion meant that imperial power had won," Crossan says. "Resurrection meant that divine justice had won. God is on the side of the crucified one. Rome's' values are a dead issue to me."
