AICE Course: The Politics of Jesus

Instructor: Min. Rashad Moore

Tuesdays 9/27, 10/11, 10/25, 11/8, 11/22, 12/6 • 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM | Vestry

“…Jesus sought not only to heal people’s pain but also to inspire and empower people to remove the unjust social and political structures that too often were the cause of their pain.” The sidewalks of America are covered with the blood of Black people. From the streets of Ferguson to the contaminated water pipes of Flint, Black communities have recently faced the harsh reality of state-sanctioned genocide in 21st Century America. Where is Jesus in this moment?

Through engaging discussions, lectures, and group reflections, this course will explore the revolutionary nature of Jesus who proclaimed a radical, economic, social, and political change for a people living under the force of the Roman Empire.

Required Reading: The Politics of Jesus: Rediscovering The True Revolutionary Nature of the Jesus’ Teachings and How They Have Been Corrupted by Obery M. Hendricks, Jr.
