Responsible Resurrection: Inventing the Passion

Interview with Art Dewey

By Alexis James Waggoner | 3.6.19

The more we make Jesus "special," the more we play into the hands of Empire. Westar Scholar Art Dewey walks us through how he suggests the Passion narrative came to be what it is -- and why we so often seek to find literal fact where there is none. This is Part I of our "Responsible Resurrection" series we're releasing during Lent. You can find his book, Inventing the Passion, here, along with a study guild resource. Watch the interview here. Download a resource Art put together for pastors and preachers here.
