Christ as Criminal Antinomian Trends for a New Millennium
1997 0-7734-8513-9
This volume begins with an examination of the manner in which the antinomian lifestyle of the historical Jesus, culminating in his trial and conviction, is described in the synoptic gospels. It then considers the Judaic theocratic tradition which he inherited, and his opposition to religious legalism. Further chapters examine the covenants; origins of the early church; Protestant theology in the 19th century (particularly Kant and Schleiermacher); the Jesus of History; the new dialogue of the antinomian Jesus with Buddhism and radical theology; and the Kingdom as Enlightenment.
