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.”
