Crossan, Rieger examine Jesus’ role in Christian theology

“So what if this Jesus that (John Dominic) Crossan is talking about, that I am starting to talk about here, is really taking us to the core of reality? What would be the implications for politics and economics, the way we live together?” Joerg Rieger asked.

Authors and theologians Crossan and Rieger returned to the Hall of Philosophy platform at 2 p.m. Wednesday to continue their afternoon lecture series, “The Heart and Soul of Money.”

John Dominic Crossan asked the Hall of Philosophy crowd to imagine a hypothetical scenario at 2 p.m. Monday.

Like Christianity and economics, Joerg Rieger and John Dominic Crossan are two very differently shaped pieces of the same puzzle.

At 2 p.m. today, and for the rest of this week, in the Hall of Philosophy, Crossan and Rieger will introduce the theme “The Heart and Soul of Money.” Crossan will take the perspective of the Bible, and Rieger will take that of Christian theology.
