    The intro essay by Eagleton is a nice materialist version of Jesus that reads the New Testament in its precarious historical detailing, noting many of the absurdities that occur when the text is read with an overly spiritual lens and from out of the incessant need to make the narrative jive with a particular theological vision Much of what he says here is also consistent with a large apportionment of Historical Jesus studies, as he often incites the criterion of embarrassment, but he does diverge a bit on his final interpretation of Jesus The largest shortcoming I see in this essay is the dismissal of various sayings of Jesus or events in the text with casual literary hand waving, as if his entire audience would why know why he makes a particular judgment on Jesus These comments require some familiarity with the research of historical Jesus or the reader may wonder why Eagleton thinks this is an interpolation or that is a late redaction I agree with much of his assessment here, but his support of these judgments is lacking in this essayalmost spok...

    Human emancipation was, apparently, a popular concept in the ancient world The Greeks desired it so much that they invented democracy, but a democracy untempered by the thoughts of women, slaves, and races other than Greek, such that imperialism became inevitable Meanwhile, the Romans invented the republic, which gave rise to all forms of romanticization of representatives, such that imperialism became inevitable If Socrates, then, is the real spirit of human emancipation, then Jesus Christ is its romanticization But Socrates was on the side of aristocrats, while Christ was on the side of the poor Socrates wanted to cure mental illness despite suffering from it himself Christ wanted to cure all forms of physical suffering Hence, the romanticization of human emancipation in Christ brought forth a concrete economic result than the pure spirit of Socrates Anyway, Eagleton examines how the text of the Gospels reveals Jesus to have been an activist who despised the literal faith of the Jews funny how, then, every Christian takes the Bib...

    Befriend sinners, prostitutes and tax collectors Love what is hated by doxa question orthodoxy Have faith in the decision to follow certain things Betray your father and your family The dead bury the dead And, last, but not least, do not bring peace, but the sword.What I like about Eagleton s introduction is his little tidbit, which must be affirmed, on the name, given to Jesus, of the Son of God Christ never refers to himself as the Son of God, but the Son of Man another way of saying, what we might say today, a human being , and it is always others who refer to him and denounce him as such Jesus response to the questioning of his being the Son of God is always lacking in the form of silence or if you say so In other words, it is only for those who accuse and it is originally an accusation Jesus of being the Son of God that Jesus becomes, for them, whether blasphemous or divine, the a name of the Son of God.What, I think, should be dism...

    Not much here really An introductory essay by Eagleton about Jesus and the Gospels then the four gospels in New Revised Standard Version NRSV I had read and enjoyed Eagleton s After Theory, and thought his take on Jesus could be stimulating.I guess I m too much into the hi...

    this is just an NRSV version of the Gospels with an introductory essay by Terry Eagleton and some footnotes by him as well I guess I just picked it up for the essay, but it wouldn t hurt to read the Gospels again either The essay itself was alright, though I think he has ...

    I needed to read the Gospels and this was a great way to do it Eagleton s intro is interesting and engagins, seeing Jesus just as another man The Gospels themselves are direct and don t waste time telling Jesus s story A lot of stuf...

    I would have liked from Eagleton As it was, the critical analysis appeared too lackadaisical because even with these four gospels which are not that long there is much ambiguity here If anything Eagleton attempts to open the spread o...

    I guess it could be said that the introduction is a materialist analysis of the Gospels, the essential teachings of the Bible and the life of Jesus It is a different way of looking at it all The rest is the new standard edition of the Gospels.
