With over two billion followers of the way of Jesus in the world, sometimes there can be many mixed messages – that Jesus was blond-haired and blue-eyed (not!), or that he was some kind of gnostic magician. Centuries of interpretation of his life and ministry lead one theologian (Rudolf Bultmann) to make a distinction between the “Jesus of History” and the “Christ of Faith.” We will explore the message and commitment to justice of the historical Jesus borrowing from Walter Wink’s under- standing of the “Third Way” of Jesus, and other new resources recently published. Discussion with eggnog to follow!
