How do activism and scholarship contribute to our understanding of Scripture in the world today?
CLBSJ is pleased to again join forces with The Alternative Seminary to host a teaching and discussion on Luke 16:1-13, the Parable of the Manager of Unjust Wealth. CLBSJ Board Member Rev. Dr. Dong Hyeon Jeong summarizes his resistance reading of this confounding parable, drawing from socio-economic analysis of the biblical context, his experience as a Korean missionary in the Philippines, as well as Mel Chen’s Animacies Theory.
This event is a part of the Alternative Seminary’s course, “Challenging Power and Privilege: A ten-week online study of the Gospel of Luke.” Members of the class cohort provide responses to Dr. Jeong’s teaching.
