An interview with Marcus Borg about the Bible, theology, and more.
January 4, 2013
Marcus Borg talks about the chronological Bible and much more.
Marcus Borg, a professor at Oregon State University who is an acclaimed Jesus scholar, is interviewed for Religion Dispatches by Pastor Candace Chellew-Hodge, the founder and editor of Whosoever, an online magazine for LGBT Christians. Borg talks about his latest book, Evolution of the Word: The New Testament in the Order the Books Were Written. He also has plenty to say about politics and social justice: “The Bible is one massive protest against the ancient domination system, which makes it a very political document. . . . .” Borg says that it’s difficult for him “to imagine how anybody who has seen what the Bible and Jesus are about could vote for policies that actually maintain or increase the wealth of those at the top in our day.”
With a history dating from 1973, we are an international organization of women and men who believe that the Bible supports the equality of the sexes. We are Christian feminists. We are inclusive. We welcome you.
"I remember feeling so thrilled to have such an intellectual friend whose memory could always pull up just the right quote at the right time. And once again I felt the same awe and admiration I had felt when I first began reading her books years before. "
