Jesus of Nazareth said and did a lot about money and power in his own time. But Jesus wasn't a "free market capitalist," despite what some conservative Christians would like us to believe in the twenty-first century. --Jesus occupied the Temple in Jerusalem--effectively the national bank of his time--and threw out those who were exploiting the poor. --Jesus organized fishermen whose industry had been wrecked by the Roman Empire. --His followers included powerful "women of means," who were last at the cross, first at the tomb, and who went on to become missionaries. --Jesus taught "in the streets," preaching that God's "side" is not that of the wealthy and powerful and that all believers need to confront inequality now. #Occupy the Bible is an eye-opening, no-holds barred look at the real message of Jesus, using the Scriptures that are foundational for the Christian faith. #Occupy the Bible is also a practical "how to" guide for potential Christian "occupiers"--people sincerely committed to confronting the rising poverty and economic inequality in the United States using the powerful, unvarnished message of Jesus of Nazareth.
