Special Lecture by John Cobb
According to Dr. John B. Cobb, Jr., the central message of Jesus was the theos basileia, which is the Greek term "God's Kingdom." Cobb argues that Jesus's proclamation of the kingdom of God was a call to "seize an alternative" to systems of power that lead to self-destruction. In this special lecture, he situates the message of Jesus in its ancient setting, and explores its relevance to our own situation.
