Description: 

In Mark 8:28, Jesus asks, "Who do you say that I am?" Christians have answered this question in complex and often conflicting ways, leading to a variety of depictions of Jesus that often bear little resemblance to one another.  This course will examine how Jesus comes to be understood as culturally significant in differing contexts, a "sticky" figure to whom various values and ideals become affixed. More precisely, this course will look at how Jesus is continually re-fashioned to advance specific social interests- how we see in Jesus what we want to see and consequently understand him to be on "our" side of a given debate.
