September 29 Jesus of Nazareth: Background: Galilean: Rural religion of israel, known for the presence of some Jewish revolutionaries. Israel was a colony of the Roman empire; Israel was oppressed, and did not have independence. It was an impoverished nation; majority of people were poor and indigent, struggled with basic food sustenance and health issues. Jesus’s Birth: Born in a modest and lowly part of Israel. He was born into a common family, not an aristocratic or priestly family. There was a stain of illegitimacy over the birth of Jesus. Jesus was known to be a carpenter, or a woodworker, it was considered to be a lowly profession. Refugee: Story in Matthew: Jesus had to flee a threat from King Herod; his father and mother flee to Egypt Jesus’s Teachings: Style: not a philosopher, but a storyteller. Storytelling: accessible to a wide spectrum of people, you don’t have to be highly educated to understand stories, like you have to be to understand philosophy. Stories are also easier to remember; more experiential than purely theoretical. They are more imaginative than purely rational. Parables: story from common life, meant to arrest the listener, to tease the mind into active though, and to provoke a change or transformation.
