WINTER:  “The Difficult Words of Jesus” by Amy-Jill Levine

Sometimes Jesus taught difficult lessons, such as hating family, acting as slaves, selling everything, Jews first, and paths to damnation .. In The Difficult Words of Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine shows how these difficult teachings would have sounded to the people who first heard them, how have they been understood over time, and how we might interpret them in the context of the Gospel of love and reconciliation.
